Barbie’s Pink Paradise Cocktail

Ready to make a beautiful drink that’d make any Ken jealous? Barbie’s Pink Paradise cocktail is just the thing!

Loaded with juicy strawberries, tart pineapple juice, and lip-puckering pink lemonade, it’s refreshing, cool, and absolutely gorgeous.

Barbie’s Pink Paradise Cocktail Recipe

Get ready to step into Barbie land because this pretty pink cocktail is about as sweet and dreamy as it gets.

I’ve got two recipes here: one for the grown-ups and one for the kids. Just be sure to keep them apart!

Either way, they’re both playful, vibrant, and just plain fun.


This recipe is surprisingly simple. But it packs a punch of flavor!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Fresh Strawberries - fresh is best. Frozen berries will add too much moisture to the drink and the flavor is muted slightly
  • Pink Lemonade - for the best sweet-tangy taste
  • Pineapple Juice - for a fun, tropical taste
  • Sugar (optional) - to enhance the fruity taste
  • Prosecco - for bubbles
  • Vodka or Rum - use good-quality booze
  • Pink Edible Glitter (optional) - this is optional, but it really makes this something special
  • Ice Cubes - make them super fun with chopped strawberries inside!
  • Whole Strawberry and Pineapple Wedge, for garnish - secure them on the rim of the glass and add a little umbrella for good measure

Why You’ll Love This Pink Paradise Cocktail

There’s so much to love about this drink.

It all starts with fresh strawberries. They need to be bright red and super ripe, so you get the best flavor.

And they’re the summer fruit, right? So this is best made when the weather is hot.

Anyway, that’s just the base. Along with the fresh strawberry puree, you’ll need delightfully tart and tropical pineapple juice.

Those together are a match made in heaven. Sweet and tart - hello!

Speaking of sweet and tart, next comes pink lemonade. It’s tangy, citrussy, and brings the perfect balance for your taste buds.

You can add a little sugar at this point. Just to enhance the fruity flavors. But if the berries are ripe enough, you probably won’t need it.

But the real magic of Barbie’s Pink Paradise cocktail is in the club soda and booze.

Between the zippy bubbles and kick of white rum (or vodka), this is one spirited drink.

And finally, for an unforgettable Barbieland experience, you’ll add edible pink glitter. Talke about effervescence!

Finished with a fresh strawberry and a wedge of pineapple, it truly is the perfect summer drink.

What to Serve with Barbie’s Pink Paradise Cocktail

Cocktails are amazing. Especially when served with good friends!

But they’re even better when you have some tasty nibbles on the side. So, here are some suggestions:

Pink Shrimp Cocktail: Give this classic appetizer a Barbie makeover and serve it in a martini glass with fresh herbs.

Pink Sushi Rolls: Turn it into a fun sushi-making night! Use pink fillings, like tuna, pickled ginger, or beetroot.

Pink Macarons or Cupcakes: You can’t go wrong with pink macarons or cupcakes. Just be sure to use a variation of pinks so it’s not too one-note.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Dip: Mix fresh raspberries with cream cheese and powdered sugar. Whip until thick and smooth, then serve with an assortment of fresh fruits and crackers.

Pink Pasta: Make a fun beetroot cream sauce and toss it with pasta.
