FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute almond milk for regular milk in a Pink Polar Bear?

Yes, you can substitute almond milk for regular milk in a Pink Polar Bear. This substitution can cater to dietary restrictions or personal taste preferences.

For a Pink Polar Bear, the best way to ensure that it's well mixed is by stirring it thoroughly in the highball glass with a long spoon. You should stir for about 30 seconds to make sure the ingredients are well-combined, especially the grenadine, which needs to be evenly distributed throughout the drink.
