7 Colourful Cocktails for Pride Month

7 Colourful Cocktails for Pride Month


Pride Month is a big deal in Toronto, with the whole city sporting rainbow flags and events taking place to celebrate this month of accepting universal love.

Last year, I went out in support of my closest friends and truly had a great time – after all, it’s just one big party and the point is to love and support each other, whether you’re part of the LGBTQ+ community or not.

That being said, there isn’t necessarily a Pride event going on every single day of the month, so it’s essential to have some bright cocktails ready to mix up if you’re throwing your own get together during these ‘down times’.

For those situations, I’ve compiled seven colourful cocktails in honour of Pride Month.

Remember that you don’t have to show your love and support during this time simply by mixing up a cocktail. As I mentioned before, despite not being part of the LGBTQ+ community myself, it doesn’t mean that I can’t accept and love everyone.

What matters is to love everyone as they are, for who they are. With this in mind, the more friends you have, the more people you have to hang out and go to awesome citywide events with, right? 🙂
