So, I am surfing around the internet, and find a recipe for the Pink Panty Dropper … say what? I, of course, clicked on it and read about this … punch, drink, mass quantity libation. All I could think of was… really? and yuck!. But, I took one for the team and tried a small scale version (single serving) and guess what?… It wasn’t that bad; actually it was quite tasty. I know, I know, doesn’t say much for my taste in cocktails, but stay with me.
My husband loves beer. Let me say that again, he really loves beer. We make many road trips to breweries, where he will talk to the brewmaster to learn all about their personal spin on beer. I, on the other hand, am a simple girl. Give me a Bud Light and, well, I’m good. This usually makes my husband’s nose crinkle. Anyway, the Pink Panty Dropper Drink recipe stated you can use cheap beer (the cheaper the better) and this punch/drink/concoction would be perfect. In my mind, this would make my Bud Light probably taste much better to my better half.
Let’s breakdown the recipe. It is basically, beer, vodka and pink lemonade. Pretty much staples in my house. Again, I didn’t want to commit to a large batch, so I experimented and came up with a single serving version. If you don’t have pink lemonade concentrate then use pre-made, it all works well.
1/2 bottle/can beer – cheaper the better here. My choice, obviously, is Bud Light
3 oz vodka
3 oz pink lemonade
Combine all of the ingredients into a glass and serve over ice.
Feel free to adjust to your personal taste.
Substitute for the vodka: Pimm’s liqueur. This gives the drink a more fruity, citrus flavor.
6 pack beer
12 oz pink lemonade concentrate
12 oz vodka (to easily measure, pour the vodka into the pink lemonade can)
Combine all of the ingredients into a punch bowl, or other large container. Chill and serve over ice.
24 cans of beer
4 (12 oz) cans of pink lemonade concentrate
1/2 gallon vodka
Combine all ingredients into a very large container (think small size trash can); chill and serve over ice.
