Cocktails for Galentine’s Day – A Life Unfolding

Do you celebrate Galentine’s Day? My daughters and I have celebrated a version of a girls’ day since they were little. So when our Idol Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation coined the term Galentine’s Day in an episode, we were all, After all, what’s not to love about celebrating female friendship!

Speaking of friendships, today I am participating in a blog hop organized by my friend Pasha Accardi from Pasha at Home. Everyone shares their favorite ways of celebrating Valentine’s/Gale tine’s day. If you are popping over from my fellow Michigander Kim @ Cottage in the Mitten, a warm wintery welcome!

Pink cocktails for Galentine’s Day

Cocktails for Celebrating Galentine’s Day

Our previous Galentine celebrations have ranged from elaborate to quick meet-ups. The one thing they always have in common is a pretty cocktail. In fact, we have two rules for our Galentine’s Day cocktails. They need to be pretty, and they need to be PINK!

Today, I am sharing a couple of our favorite Galentine’s Day Cocktails:

Sparkling Vodka Limeade Highball

This cocktail is very easy, and since I like Vodka, one we make for several occasions. Mix this cocktail in the glass.

Ingredients for Galentine's Day Cocktails.
Sparkling Vodka Limeade


  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 2 oz Sparkling Limeade
  • 1/2 oz Grenadine
  • Ice
  • Pink sugar for the rim of the glass.


Using a High Ball glass, rim the edge with colored sugar. I used a festive pink here.
