The X FactorWords by Jennifer Stein Words by Kate Darnell
I'm not usually one for pink drinks, foo-foo cocktails or giant drinks that look like flower arrangements.
However, I do love a pretty signature drink for a destination wedding and more over, I love a drink that tastes great. X Rated Fusion Liquor just sent a bottle of their fruity libation my way and I thought, "Oh, no, I don't think I can do a pink drink!" But I opened my mind and freed my taste buds and boy am I glad! This fusion liquor can be paired with all kinds of mixers and is perfect for a bachelorette party or bridal shower. Give it as a gift and you'll be the hit of the party!
Here are some of the recipes given to us from the team at X Rated, but I loved it over ice with a splash of club soda and a squeeze of lime!Flaming Lips - created by Matthew Malliski, Howl at the Moon – Hollywood, CA
