Thirsty Thursday: The Ladybug Cocktail

As I mentioned to you earlier this week, my oldest daughter celebrated her 2nd birthday this past weekend with a ladybug-themed party.  As I planned it, I knew I had to include a fun cocktail for my adult guests to enjoy.  While the husbands all enjoyed their assortment of Mexican beers, the women got to enjoy my signature cocktail, I created for the party.  The Ladybug Cocktail is so easy to make, and my guests enjoyed making their own, while enjoying the party.  Hope y’all enjoy it too!


POM (Pomegranate juice)

Pour champagne into champagne glass.  Add a splash or two of POM.  And garnish with a blackberry.  Simple, and so yummy!

The drink was definitely a hit, and many guests went back for more.  By the end of the party, all the champagne bottles were empty, so I’m guessing everyone had a great time!

Cheers to W turning 2!

  4. Hi from a fellow resident of NC (well, I live there in the summer! I love the beach so much). Your cocktail sounds delicious-can't wait to try it, I will tell myself that the POM makes it healthy too! By the way, there is a Lilly Signature store here-"Life's A Beach". Opened about 7 years ago. They even have a Lilly painted life size horse put in front of the store! Love it!

  5. How easy is this drink?! And it looks delicious and pretty! I am definitely doing this for my next house party.

  7. That sounds so yummy! And a blackberry is very unexpected. I'm surprised the POM juice didn't make the champagne a strange color, but in the photo it looks positively delicious. Cheers!

  8. The ladybug cocktail sounds so refreshing and delicious! I think it’s really cute that you made that for the adult ladies at the party. Your outfit for the party was so cute and I love that watch!

  9. That drink looks fabulous! Is it bad I wish I was 21 already just so I would have access to good drinks! Love your outfit for the party! So cute but easy to run around in!
