Get Ready For The ‘Barbie’ Movie By Making These Cute Cocktails & Mocktails

I don’t know about you, but the month of July is starting to look like the best month of the summer. Taylor Swift is re-recording one of my personal favorites, Speak Now, the Fourth of July gives me an excuse to wear a red-white-and-blue outfit, and most importantly, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie comes out on July 21. I’ve already cleared my calendar for that day, so if you need me, you’re going to have to come find me at the movie theatre, watching the movie over and over again. 

There are so many reasons to be excited about this movie. The biggest thing is that it’s directed by total girl-boss queen, icon, legend, Greta Gerwig. I don’t think it’s possible for her to make a minute of bad cinema. (I mean, we all watched her recreation of Little Women with Timmy T, right?) Also, the cast for this movie is too good to be true: Miss Margot Robbie is playing Barbie (because, duh) and her Ken is none other than Ryan Gosling. Since the movie is going to be coming out when it is hot outside, why not celebrate everything Barbie is with some cocktails and mocktails from TikTok? These drinks are fun, bright, and exciting, just like Barbie. If you are planning on having a Malibu Barbie summer or a Doctor Barbie summer, having a fun cocktail with your girlies is always a good idea!

Barbie Margarita

This Barbie marg is everything: perfect for a pool day, especially if you want to channel your inner Malibu Barbie

Pink Sparkle Drink

What’s a Barbie-inspired drink without some (edible) glitter? This is also perfect if you are planning on having a Barbie party because it makes a BIG amount! 

Barbie Mimosas

Barbie Mimosas 🌸✨🥂 The perfect way to start the weekend, IMO 💁🏼‍♀️ I used grapefruit juice and edible glitter to fill the flower ice cube molds (linked in my Amazon storefront) ✨ Sparkling rosé is the delicious @lavieillefermesparkling @vineyardbrands which is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Pinot Noir. Notes of peach and citrus with fresh acidity 🍑🍋 Cheers!🥰 #barbiecocktail #barbiemimosa #barbiedrink #cocktailidea #edibleglitter #sparklingcocktail #glitterdrink

You say “brunch,” I say, “when?” I’m always down for brunch, especially if a mimosa is involved. These Barbie mimosas are the moment and you have to make them.

Rosé With A Touch of Glitter 

You really thought I was only going to put one glitter drink in here? This one is also a little bit different (and easier!) because it’s just wine and edible glitter.

Pink Lemonade Twist

So if you make this drink (which looks delicious on its own) you MUST make it in a fun glass. Barbie wouldn’t use any ordinary glass she had sitting around, so embrace your “extra-ness” and get yourself some fun twisty glasses.

Cupid’s Lemonade Mocktail

The perfect pink mocktail for all of your valentines 😚🍓 #mocktails #mocktail #mocktailrecipes #girlsnightin #valentinesday2023 #valentinesdayrecipes #valentinesrecipes #valentines2023 #valentinescocktails #valentinesmocktail #valentinesdrinks #galentines2023 #galentinescocktails #galentinesmocktail #galentinesdrink #galentinespartyideas #galentinesday2023 sparkly drink | pink drink | galentine’s Day party ideas | Valentine’s Day party ideas | galentines recipe | galentines mocktail | mocktail recipe | heart drink | pink mocktail

♬ This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) – Natalie Cole

These are perfect for Valentine’s Day, but they are even better for Barbie. I mean, cmon: the little strawberry hearts? Made for Miss Barbie.

Love Potion Mocktail

Barbie (respectfully) would not understand what a love potion is (she is simply a doll), but she would certainly love this mocktail. You should 100% try this out.

Boozy Barbie Popsicles

Boozy Barbie Popsicles 💖 🥂 Pink, glittery drinks are my entire personality at the moment ✨💁🏼‍♀️ These popsicles are delicious on their own or you can use the same bottle of rosé and use the popsicle to keep your drink cold 🧊 Here’s what I used: 🍓Fresh cut strawberries 🌹Belvoir Elderflower & Rose Lemonade 🍷Macrostie Rose ✨Edible glitter 🥂 Glassware, popsicle molds, & edible glitter are all linked in my Amazon Shop! #barbie #barbiecore #barbiedrink #barbiegirl #barbietheme #barbiecocktail #barbiepopsicle #barbieidea #barbieeverything #barbiemovie #barbiechallenge #barbietiktok

♬ Barbie Girl – Aqua

Yes, I know, this is not a drink, but how could I not include it?! These boozy popsicles are perfect for the summer and you know Malibu Barbie would love them.

Barbie Lemonade

Another fun pink drink perfect for your Barbie party!

A shot is technically a drink, so this fits into the category, right? Regardless, these Barbie shots are perfect for the summer.
