With the new Barbie movie lighting up the silver screen, I couldn't resist but whip up something extraordinary to celebrate! Picture this: two mind-blowing tiki cocktails inspired by the movie's charm and the fabulous characters we all adore! 🍹🎬👸
First up, the Barbie cocktail – it's like a delightful twist on the classic Leche de Pantera.
So, let's dive into the real origins story of Leche de Pantera. In the vibrant city of Seville, Spain, during the 1960s, a legendary bar called "Casa Morales" was at the heart of the local nightlife scene. It was here that a clever bartender created the now-famous cocktail, Leche de Pantera.
The story goes that the bartender wanted to craft a drink that not only packed a punch but also had a deceptively sweet taste, reminiscent of the allure of a panther. The drink was meant to give a nod to the strength and elegance of this majestic creature. And so, Leche de Pantera was born, combining cream, gin, and a delightful blend of secret ingredients, which remain closely guarded to this day.
Now, fast forward to our Barbie-inspired version of the cocktail. In celebration of the Barbie movie's vivacity and charm, I replaced the usual grenadine with the sweetness of fresh black plum and the tangy zing of lingonberry jam. It's a burst of fruity magic, just like Barbie herself! 🌈🍇
This adds a whole new dimension of flavor, reflecting Barbie's vibrant and fun-loving personality in every sip. It's like a playful tribute to the drink's Spanish roots and the spirit of adventure that Barbie embodies! 👢👩🏻🚀
Now, when we gather for our Barbie movie night, we'll be sipping on these handcrafted delights, raising our glasses to fashion, friendship, and all the fantastic adventures in store! Let’s toast to Barbie and Ken, and immerse ourselves in the magic of the movie with these sensational tiki cocktails! 🎉👸🤵🍹

Join us for a movie night like no other, celebrating fashion, friendship, and fun with this Barbie-approved, Barbie-inspired drink! 🌈🍇👸 #BarbieMovie #TikiCocktail #Recipe
1.5 oz nonalcoholic gin, like A Cut Above Zero Alcohol Gin
1 oz nonalcoholic spiced rum, like Caleño Dark & Spicy
2.5 oz Coconut Condensed Milk
Coconut Creamer with Adaptogens, like Laird Superfood Creamer
2 oz Guava Rose flavor Wildwonder
2 teaspoons Ikea ligonberry jelly
2 black plums, sliced
Add the sliced black plums to a tin and muddle until juices come out. This is where you get the color of the drink, so be sure to get some juice out. If they are dry, add more plums.
Add the Caleño, ligonberry jam, coconut creamer, and coconut condensed milk and ice.
Shake around 7-10 seconds until well chilled and slightly diluted.
Double strain into a chilled martini or coupe glass.
Top with the Guava Rose Wildwonder. Be careful because it will foam up, as the carbonation interacts with the creamer.
Garnish with a slice of black plum, cut to resemble a fan.
Serve and enjoy!
