LGBTQ Pride is a year-round deal, but when Pride Month rolls around, we should level up in every way possible. 

When June hits, people across the world start flying their rainbow flags high. Festivals and parades pop up everywhere, and house parties and Pride gatherings occur daily.

In Costa Rica the big event is the Pride Parade, which will be held on Sunday in San José City.

If you are ready to take the queer cheer to the next level by throwing or joining a rainbow gathering, I’ve got the best Pride Cocktails for your colorful party.

So, let’s go to the minibar!

The few ingredients you will need are:

  • 1 oz. (30ml) Grenadine.
  • 1/2 oz. (15ml) Peach Schnapps.
  • 1 1/2 oz. (45ml) Pineapple Juice.
  • 1 oz. (30ml) Vodka.
  • 1/2 oz. (15ml) Blue Curaçao.
  • Garnish: Orange Slice, Cherry.

A tip. An alternative for blue curacao you can use Club Soda as a substitute, then add a few drops of blue food coloring to get that signature color.

This cocktail couldn't be easier to fix. First, put some Grenadine into the base of a glass and slowly spoon in some ice cubes. Set aside.

In a shaking glass with ice, combine peach schnapps and pineapple juice. Shake well.

Slowly pour over grenadine, filling almost to the top.

In a separate shaking glass with ice, combine vodka and blue curaçao. Shake well and carefully layer on top.

Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry and enjoy!

Have a Pura Vida Pride weekend!
