7 Pride-Inspired Cocktails You Can Easily Make At Home

It can’t be called a party without some booze around the house! Show your pride with these rainbow-colored cocktails that you can make at home with your beshies.

Gone were the days when a rainbow was just merely a group of colors that reflect this iridescent light onto the calm blue sky. 

Today, the meaning of a rainbow is more than just colors—this is home to the most fearless, bold, and queer LGBTQIA+ people that shine the brightest light onto the people around them, and is an inspiration to those who are afraid to be who they really are on the inside. 

So what are you waiting for? Fight for your pride and celebrate you by showing off to the world who you truly are and what you stand for in the most subtle but fun and quirky way with these seven Pride-inspired cocktails.

For all you rum lovers, I have another cocktail for you!

This simple and aesthetically pleasing drink is perfect for that poolside summer party. Though the teal color and the hint of red may frighten you, this drink will definitely make you come back for more!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Tanduay Select
  • 3 oz sour mix
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz blue curaçao
  • A splash of grenadine
  • Crushed ice
  • Garnish with lime 


Let’s start with some freshly-made ice in any glass of your choice or in a cocktail shaker, if you prefer to serve it straight up in a martini glass. Pour the rum over the ice and add the blue curacao after. Top off the glass with 3 ounces of sour mix to make it extra tangy. You can choose to leave it as is but if you want to spice it up a little, add a splash of grenadine for that extra bloodied look and garnish however you like. 

Now, where is my bloody dinner?

Calling all my bisexuals out there, this drink is made for you. This purple drink may be bold but it will definitely bring out the attractiveness in you. So let’s make it at home and celebrate YOU!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Tanduay Select
  • 1 oz blue curaçao
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz grenadine
  • Ice cubes
  • Garnish with lemon and mint leaves

Instructions: If you would like to take this drink to the next level, you can take a glass and rim the edges with a lemon wedge, and dab on purple sugar for that added pop of color. The purple sugar is a mixture of sugar, blue curaçao, and grenadine.

Then in a separate shaking glass with ice, combine the rum, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, blue curaçao, and grenadine. Shake it well until it’s chilly to the touch. Top the rimmed glass with ice and strain the mix into it and garnish with a lemon slice.

The Paradise Cocktail

This month isn’t just any month, it is a celebration of life and sexuality! So what better way to end this with a Pride-inspired cocktail? 

What you’ll need:

  • 1 oz Tanduay Select
  • 1/2 oz blue curaçao
  • 1 oz water
  • 1 oz of grenadine
  • 2-3 oz pineapple juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Garnish with lemon


This recipe does take a while to prepare but I promise you, the outcome is worth every preparation. 

First, pour the grenadine into a 400 ml hurricane glass or any glass you have at home. If you have a jigger of 20/40 ml, go right ahead and use it but if you don’t, don’t fret. You can also use a shot glass for this.

Fill the entire glass with ice. Pour the pineapple juice into the glass with the grenadine syrup—we recommend that you stir it up in order to achieve that beautiful orange layer). Mix a bit of water with blue curaçao and pour it slowly onto the angled spoon over the yellow layer you will start to see the layers form to create a green layer. Once the mixture has been poured, serve this drink with a lemon or orange slice to top it all off!
