Imagine a drink that embodies the very essence of pink – sweet, lively, and radiant. That’s exactly what The Barbie Drink is all about! This blended beauty is a delightful mix of raspberry-infused vodka, maraschino liqueur, half and half, vanilla simple syrup, and a few fresh raspberries – all whipped up to perfection with ice, and let me tell you, it’s a visual stunner!
As soon as the Barbie Drink is placed before you, you can’t help but marvel at its baby pink hue, reminiscent of cotton candy at the carnival or a sky lit up by a perfect sunset. And that’s just the beginning of this sipping experience.
Take a sip, and you’re instantly in for a yummy treat. The raspberry-infused vodka brings a burst of juicy, tart flavor that’s balanced beautifully with the smooth sweetness of maraschino liqueur. It’s like indulging in ripe, plump berries all within a cocktail glass.
Now, let’s talk about the half and half, which adds a creamy texture that is crucial to the mix as it gives this recipe a new edge. The Barbie Drink doesn’t shy away from being rich, but it’s not overly heavy either – just the right amount of lusciousness.
To add a touch of sweetness, I went ahead and dropped in some vanilla simple syrup. The essence of vanilla not only sweetens this mixture up but adds a touch more flavor which is always a great choice. But what makes this a true Barbie Drink is the addition of raspberries that gives this cocktail it’s signature baby pink hue. You just can’t help but admire its beauty.
Let’s not forget the pink sparkly rim – a shimmering invitation to the world of all things fabulous! The rim adds a touch of sweetness and a hint of sparkle with each sip, making you feel like you’re toasting to life’s little pleasures.
Step 1: Combine all ingredients in a blender with 1 cup of crushed ice.
Step 2: Blend on high until smooth, about 10-15 seconds.

Step 3: Pour into a chilled and rimmed glass and garnish with a lemon wheel.
The Barbie Drink is not just a cocktail; it’s an experience. It’s fun, flirty, and unapologetically pink – the embodiment of joy in a glass. But, a word of caution – The Barbie Drink is so irresistible that you might find yourself wanting to sip on it all night long!
