How To Make a Pink Flirtini

The Pink Flirtini is a cocktail which is traditionally made with champagne.  In 2000, this pink and bubbly drink was created at Guastavino's in New York City, where HBO held the season premiere of its hit series Sex and the City.  The star of the show, Sarah Jessica Parker, requested a drink that was "pink and fun".  The bartender quickly created this martini-like drink, which Parker dubbed the "Pink Flirtini".  The drink has been featured on the show, and is a hit with fans who gather for viewing parties of Sex and the City.  Making Pink Flirtinis is easy, and they will be a hit at your next party.
