Thirsty Thursday: The Pink Lilly

This week’s concoction comes from the book that I just finished reading, Social Climbers.  Beth Dunn wrote about this sweet cocktail she served at one of her fun parties.  It sounds absolutely delicious!  Please let me know when you give this one a try, and tell me if you like it!  I’m hoping to make it soon!

2 Cups Grapefruit Juice
2 Cups Pineapple Juice
1 1/2 Cups White Rum
1 Cup Chilled Club Soda
Splash of Grenadine (to make it pink!)

In a pitcher, combine juices and rum. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Stir well and pour into ice-filled martini or high ball glasses. Top with club soda and grenadine, and garnish with a mint sprig.


In the words of Beth Dunn, “Collars up!”
A pink ensemble for this one, ladies, for Trish’s Pink and Green Thursday.
(These look weird, but they look awesome on, and make your legs look a mile long!)
(A girl can dream, right?)
Happy Sipping on this Thursday!

This pink and green dress would also look great while drinking your Pink Lilly.  I’ve got it listed on ebay.  It’s a brand new, with tags, Lilly Pulitzer Livie Dress, size 8.  It retails for $328, and I’ve got it on ebay with a starting bid of $89.95.  Click here if interested.  It’s so cute, with hidden side pockets too!


Yesterday’s locations were Boston, Massachusetts and Scarborough, Maine.  We’re having a wonderful time in Boston, and taking advantage of everything the city has to offer!  We also have a couple of great tour guides, as well.  A and S, y’all are the best!  Tomorrow, we’re off to the wedding weekend in Maine.  Can’t wait!

  1. Drink sounds delish, I am going to have to try it. LOVE the outfit that you put together! Happy Pink and Green Thursday!

  2. Since I cannot drink (Your Thursday cocktails will torture me until I deliver!) I think I will take the Chanel bracelet… do you think that would make a good push present? I think so…

  3. What a fabulous weekend you're going to have!! I will have to try that drink by the pool in Florida! And, I agree with Miss Southern Prep…. that Chanel bracelet is fabulous!

  4. That drink looks delish! Have to try that soon and my sister was just in Maine a few days ago and now in Boston. Everyone keeps telling me lately that I need to visit Maine. Anywhere you'd recommend? Have a fabulous time at the wedding πŸ™‚ Safe travels!

  5. I love your 'concoction.' It sounds really refreshing. I hope you enjoy your weekend. Blessings…Mary

  6. New follower! πŸ™‚ Love the idea of "Thirsty Thursday!"…can't wait to make myself a pink Lilly! πŸ™‚

  7. that drink looks so delicious, possibly my favorite you've posted yet. And the pink theory dress is amazing. I have a wedding in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend and that would be perfect. Your Lilly dress is too cute, wish I knew what size I'd be after babygirl gets here.

  8. Oooooh, that Theory dress! I'd love to wear that to an outdoor summer wedding this season. Also, I'll be drinking The pink lilly cocktail while I'm wearing the dress. Ahhh, sounds fabulous. Hope you have a great day!


  9. Ashley,

    How was the book? I need a new summer read. This drinks looks so good. I will send you pictures when I make it.

  10. Ahhh…the pink lilly sounds so refreshing and perfect for summer. I’m going to make a note of this cocktail. I have Beth’s book I just need to find the time to read it! She is such a doll.

    The Theory dress and Chanel bracelet are all very beautiful. Great combination!
