It’s girls’ night in with relaxed vibes and a new twist. Call your crew over for a girls’ night in with cool conversation and these tasty cocktails.

CLASSIC CHERRY MARGARITA

The cherry-limeade flavor will evoke those nostalgic childhood sleepover memories, when you and your friends giggled and gossiped over soda and snacks. But now that you’re grown, you can update your virtual slumber party with a little tequila—because girl talk just flows better over margaritas.

Ingredients:

4 ounces Jose Cuervo Cherry Limeade Margarita
1 ounce sparkling water

Directions:

Pour both ingredients in a cup filled with ice. Garnish with cherries and a slice of lime.

BUY ME FLOWERS

You don’t need a special someone to call “sweetie,” especially when you fall in love with this honey-sweetened cocktail. Plus, you still get the roses—even if it’s just for garnish.

Ingredients:

1½ ounces Bombay Sapphire
½ ounce honey
¾ ounce lemon juice
2 dashes rose water
1½ ounce Martini & Rossi sparkling rosé
1 rose petal

Directions:

In a shaker filled with ice, add the Bombay Sapphire, honey, lemon juice and rose water. Shake vigorously to chill. Double strain into a chilled flute or stemmed cocktail glass and top with Martini sparkling rosé. Garnish with rose petal.

A ROSÉ BY ANY OTHER NAME

Impress your friends with the flavorful DIY infusion. With the flavors of chocolate, almond and bubbly, it’s like diving into a box of chocolates and champagne. What could be more fitting?

Ingredients:

1 to 1½ ounces rose and almond-infused Grey Goose Vodka*

¹/3 ounce crème de cacao blanc
¹/3 ounce rose liqueur
Rosé champagne or prosecco to top

Directions: In a shaker filled with ice, add the crème de cacao, rose liqueur and vodka. Shake to chill. Strain into a flute and top with champagne or prosecco. *Infuse 1 bottle with 4 large tablespoons of dried rose petals. Add in 8 drops of organic almond essence.
