Paranormal Pink

Day 332



Paranormal Pink
4.5 shots out of 5


We're back to normal.  We have a birthday party this afternoon and then it's back home to watch our 49ers in the playoffs!  Let's go Niners!!  Time to make a cocktail now so that I can enjoy the party and then......probably too many beers tonight with the game!

I gave tonight's...OK totally this afternoon's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  I received this recipe from one of my awesome twitter followers, Jen.  She had this cocktail around Halloween time and it was called Paranormal Pink......she assumes it's called something else during the rest of the year, but since that's how she had it, that's how I'm going to have it.  I'm ashamed to say that I honestly can't remember if I've ever tried cream soda!  Odd, I know.  This cocktail is great with the cream soda being added to the other ingredients.  I really like it, it adds an awesome creaminess to this cocktail that is so good.  Thanks Jen for this cocktail recipe!

Here is the recipe for a Paranormal Pink:

  • 1 oz marshmallow vodka
  • 1 oz sprite
  • 1 oz cream soda
  • cherries for garnish
In a short cocktail glass filled 3/4 with ice, add all of your ingredients except the cherries.  Stir up your cocktail well and garnish with cherries.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to my very first cocktail with cream soda!  Delish!!

Cheers!!

  1. When it's not even "tonight" on the East coast, you definitely have to claim it being afternoon over on your coast. :) This sounds very sweet but fun to try if I happen to have a cream soda around. I'm failing to see where the pink part is supposed to come in. Maybe it looks pink if the cherries are actually in the drink?

    1. Ha ha, you're totally right! I started quite early yesterday =)

      I thought the same thing about the cocktail and dropped the cherries in it as well......but no pink. I'm sure the real name of the cocktail didn't have the word pink in it.......but maybe for Halloween, the Paranormal Pink part is invisible like ghosts? lol, I dunno......that's all I got =)

  2. In Canada, our cream soda is pink, so it makes the drink VERY pink :)

    1. OH, well maybe that's where this cocktail originally came from then. That makes a lot more sense then the color I made =)
