This Sleeping Beauty Cocktail is Beautiful & Refreshing


Written by:

Sweet, slightly tart, and a little bubbly, this Sleeping Beauty Cocktail is inspired by the classic Disney princess–both her iconic pink dress and her drowsy and slightly sassy nature!

Thanks to a splash of Chambord raspberry liqueur, this vanilla vodka cocktail takes on a gorgeous pink hue. Made with simple and reliable ingredients, you’ll love the combination of fruity flavors with a hint of citrus and vanilla.

The result is a beautiful and refreshing cocktail that you can garnish to your heart’s content!

This Sleeping Beauty Cocktail with raspberry liqueur and vanilla vodka is the perfect balance of sweetness and tart, fruity flavor.

With a flavor similar to berries and cream and an extra lift from bubbly lemon-lime soda, this Sleeping Beauty cocktail is the perfect drink for girl’s night, as a party refreshment, or to enjoy alongside a Disney movie marathon!


Whether you’re hosting a costume party, cocktail hour, or having some friends over for a nostalgic movie night, this cocktail with raspberry liqueur is sure to be a hit.

It combines three simple ingredients for a refreshing drink with the perfect amount of sweetness!

Just like our Vodka Raspberry Lemonade, this vanilla vodka cocktail takes advantage of tart and fruity raspberry liqueur for a beautiful color palette and flavor.

The end result is a fizzy drink inspired by Princess Aurora, but you won’t be sleeping once you take a sip of this vibrant and elegant cocktail!

And if you love cocktails that feature the color pink, you’ll also adore this Barbie Drink, a candy-inspired Strawberry Lemonade Starburst Cocktail, or a classic and sophisticated Cosmopolitan.


Ingredients for sleeping beauty cocktail on a countertop.

With just a few simple ingredients and a colorful garnish, it’s so simple to whip up a round of these vanilla vodka cocktails.

  • Ice Cubes – this drink is best enjoyed ice cold.
  • Vanilla Vodka – the Smirnoff vanilla vodka is our choice, but feel free to use any brand you like.
  • Raspberry Liqueur – Chambord raspberry liqueur will likely be easiest to find, but any raspberry flavored liqueur works fine.
  • Sprite – you can also use any other kind of lemon-lime flavored soda, like 7-Up or Starry.
  • Maraschino Cherries – add a pop of additional gorgeous color and sweet flavor.


  1. Add ice cubes to a glass. Pour in the vanilla vodka and the Chambord raspberry liqueur. Top off with Sprite. Combine all of your ingredients over ice for a simple and quick cocktail that’s guaranteed to satisfy!
  2. Garnish with cherries, then serve and enjoy.


  • For a more subtle cocktail, use a regular vodka instead of a vanilla flavored one.
  • Similarly, you could use an unflavored sparkling water or even a bit of champagne or prosecco to add the bubbles without as much sweetness.
  • Instead of lemon-lime soda, ginger ale also works.
  • Other ways to achieve a pink color include mixing in some raspberry simple syrup, or using another ingredient like the pink variety of Kinky Liqueur.


  • For additional garnish, add a fresh sprig of mint, a lemon or lime wedge, or a curl of citrus peel.
  • Use some food coloring to get a deeper and more intense pink color.
  • Other decorations include colorful paper straws or fun plastic shaped straws, like the heart straws shown below.
  • This cocktail can also be made in a pitcher or large punch bowl. Wait until just before serving to mix in the lemon-lime soda to prevent your cocktails from going flat.

What is Chambord raspberry liqueur?

This fruit flavored liqueur has an ABV of 16.5% and is inspired by a late 17th century liqueur that was produced in France in the Loire Valley.

It has a distinct raspberry flavor and purple-red color, which makes it a perfect addition to cocktails. It can also be sipped and enjoyed on its own!

Why is it called a Sleeping Beauty Cocktail?

Because of its pink color that mimics the famous dress Aurora wears in the 1959 Disney animated film, this cocktail has been dubbed the Sleeping beauty or Aurora Cocktail.

The pop of citrus could also be tied into her iconic blonde hair, which contrasts beautifully against the pink dress. This pretty Princess Aurora cocktail is such a simple and easy to make drink.
