BEIJOS COCKTAIL | JANUARY 26,2024
cmon on barbie, let’s go party.
Imagine being able to transform into any Barbie you desire! If you have a love for yummy food + cocktails plus hosting events, then you would want to be a Beijos Barbie. She is all about elegance, fun, and sophistication, throwing the most memorable parties with eye-catching decor, making mouth-watering food, and thirst-quenching cocktails. When it comes to choosing the perfect cocktail, I love to keep it pretty and feminine, with a touch of floral elegance. This flower explosion cocktail is the perfect drink to serve at such an event. This delightful concoction is a mixture of tangy citrus, juicy guava, sweet pineapple, and a hint of elderflower to add a touch of floral goodness. Imagine sipping on this beautiful drink while mingling with friends and family and enjoying the delightful ambiance. It’s a drink that not only looks gorgeous but also tastes amazing.

What’s Elderflower Liquor?
Elderflower liqueur is a delightful alcoholic liqueur that captures the essence of spring. It’s created using the delicate white blossoms of the elderflower bush, which are handpicked and steeped in alcohol to create a sweet and floral liqueur. The flavor is light, with a subtle hint of citrus that adds a refreshing zing to the drink. Elderflower liqueur is a versatile ingredient that’s perfect for creating a wide range of cocktails, but it’s also a great standalone drink that’s perfect for sipping on a warm summer evening.
Can I Make This Ahead Of Time?”
Absolutely! And not only that, you can even make it in batches. Just mix all the ingredients together, except for the sparkling water, and store the mixture in the fridge, covered, until you’re ready to serve. When it’s time to enjoy your cocktail, pour the mixture into your glass and then add ice and sparkling water. If you’re making several servings, use our handy tool to help you out. Don’t forget to add some florals for an extra touch of elegance. Now, it’s time to serve and enjoy your delicious cocktail!
