I have put together many breast cancer fundraising events and we always have the Pink Martini as our specialty drink and it sells like hot cakes.

Our recipe is super simple. NutriSoda and Shakers Vodka were our sponsors so we mixed several pink NutriSodas with Vodka and it made a very lovely pink drink!

I love the pink drinks and will most likely be using at least one of these receipes for our “think pink themed” wedding next year.

I made the pink russian last night and my mom said it can be called the blushing bride b/c after drinking half she was flushed. It is absolutely delicious (and deceptively strong)!!!!

They all look good to me! First pour will have to be the CHAMBORD PINK-TINI – I love Chambord. I like to add a splash to champagne for a bit of color and taste.

My Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Party was a success. For drinks I made a punch and purchased blushed color wines. For decorations I purchased .99 cent impatience and cover the plastic pots with solid pink and polk a dot tissue paper. Cut the paper on the top to make it look like ribbons and it looked super. I also purchased 4 huge tissue paper flowers for $2 that looked amazing. I will post a pic soon. Thanks ladies for all your ideas. Purchased everything at Walmart and dollar stores.

P.S. Used pink pipe cleaner idea to decorated the botton of wine glasses. Used flowers in my yard inside cylinder vases as centerpieces. No one had a clue they were from my garden. They looked beautiful and were free. I purchased pink glow lights for $1 per pack at Wal-mart and made a pink bracelet and a necklace per guest. It was cool how they shined in the night. We played Who am I? and it was great fun.
