Pretty pink cocktails

One blog I visit almost daily is the Hostess with the Mostess Blog, it is packed with great ideas for party planning, recipes and other entertaining tips. I had to pass along these fabulous, pretty pink cocktails that Jen (the Hostess blog writer) posted the other day. I haven't tried either recipe, but they look delish and also lovely. These would be great signature drinks for any bridal shower or birthday party.


PINK MARTINI

Ingredients:
2 oz good-quality gin (I would probably use vodka)
½ oz guava nectar
½ oz fresh orange juice
orange twist (for garnish)

Directions:
Shake the liquid ingredients vigorously with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Run the orange peel around the rim, twist it over the drink, and drop.


RASPBERRY MOJITO

Ingredients:
2 oz rum
.5 oz Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur
6-8 fresh mint leaves
2 lime wedges
1/2 tsp sugar
club soda

Directions:
Add sugar, mint leaves, lime wedges and a splash of club soda to a tall glass. Muddle until sugar is dissolved. Add ice to glass. Add rum and Chambord. Stir to mix. Top with a splash of soda.
