The Return Of The Pink Elephant

I hope no one has seen this guy today! I have not, but it was not for lack of trying. A friend and I split a pitcher of some New Years Punch last night, but sadly never even reached a state of buzzedness. I should of stuck to my usual drink from the establishment I was in: "The Return of The Pink Elephant" . It's comprised of a mystery amount of the following things:  

  • Orange Vodka
  • Lemonade
  • Champagne
  • Cranberry Juice

Shaken, and served in a champy flute that is rimmed with delicious rock candy sugar. For a frothy girlie pink drink, the Pink Elephants pack a punch... I've been known to knock 2 back, think I have my bearings only to promptly fall off a bar stool.  Yep, I should of stuck to my usual last night, but it was a nice night anyway.

In general the concept of pink elephants makes me smile. Like most people, I especially love the illustrations of drunken pink elephants. I only own one piece of pink elephant barware, it's a smallish tip tray:

i know they make larger ones, i will have to pick some up if i ever find more.

In boredom, I did a search of funky old pink elephant items, here are a few of the cute things I found:

And of course, when in doubt of how to make a perfect drink, consult the Sally Draper How-To Guide! (this is the last Mad Men reference I will make in a while I promise).

I saw a pink elephant bar towel on Etsy once. By the time I thought and clicked to buy it was already gone. Love your tray, the elephants on it are way cute.
