Drinky Drinks: Popular Parenting Pinterest Pin Picks


Tequila Soaked Watermelon

This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend, which means many people will be getting together to celebrate and just hang out. Memorial Day parties often include alcoholic drinks. For my Popular Parenting Pinterest Pin Picks of the week, here are my top alcoholic drink and alcoholic concoction pins. Remember to always drink responsibly!

Popular Sangria Pin

Sangria is a wine punch typical of Spain, Portugal and Argentina that normally consists of wine and chopped fruit. My top pick of the week for a sangria recipe perfect for Memorial Day is raspberry and serrano sangri­a from Tree Hugger.

Popular Jello Shots Pin

Jello shots are a fun way to serve alcohol at a party. Just be sure to keep the Jello shots out of reach of any children. For my top Jello shot pick of the week, I love the fun and creative watermelon Jello shots from Recipe by Photo.

Popular Alcoholic Fruit Pin

Watermelon is a no-brainer for a Memorial Day cookout. I love the tequila-soaked watermelon with some salt from Miss Mallory as an adult version of the delicous and summery fruit.

Popular Mimosa Pin

A mimosa is a cocktail-like drink composed of one part champagne and one part thoroughly chilled citrus fruit juice. Mimosas are currently a very popular drink. My top pick of the week is a twist on the classic mimosa: a bleeding mimosa with blood orange ice cubes from Domestic Fits.

Popular Patriotic Drink Pin

Memorial Day would not be complete without some patriotic drinky drinks. My top pick is a pin featuring five patriotic cocktails from Thoughtfully Simple: Fourth of July cocktail, strawberry sucker, watermelon mint cooler, patriotic margarita, and HYPNOTIQ Blue martini.

  1. The raspberry sangria looks fabulous! I would never have thought to put serrano pepper in a drink!

  2. I gave up drinking over a decade ago, but I seriously am missing mimosas right now. It's the perfect brunch beverage.

  3. The sangria is my favourite on the list, but the others look good too. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I LOVE Sangria and that alcoholic Watermelon looks absolutely divine! I need to have a party I think.
