The Pink Diamond is an unapologetic frou frou drink. It’s beautiful, pink and creamy, and it tastes like a chocolate covered cherry, but a little bit lighter and less cloyingly sweet. People may turn up their noses at it, but it’s hard to imagine actually not liking the taste of it.
I love that this cocktail has tequila instead of vodka or rum. Tequila is underused in drinks that don’t contain lime – it goes very well with a lot of different flavors and textures.
- 1 ounce white tequila
- 1 ounce white creme de cacao
- 1 ounce milk
- 1 splash grenadine syrup
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour all the ingredients in and shake vigorously. Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass. Optional: for garnish, rim the glass with sugar and add a cherry. You can also swirl chocolate syrup around the edges of the glass.
