5 Cocktails That Celebrate Pantone’s Color of the Year: Peach Fuzz!

The Pantone Color of the Year is something that influences not only fashion and art, but graphic and multimedia design, advertising, marketing and much of the consumer world.

The beverage industry is no stranger to this influence as we’ve seen in year’s past. Last year, Pantone’s Viva Magenta was named 2023’s Color of the Year and we wrote about how this inspired many bartenders to welcome the inclusion of pomegranate and/or hibiscus in cocktails, to honor Viva Magenta’s bright, ruby velvet color. The 2024 Color of the Year was just recently announced: Peach Fuzz. A light, delicate shade that sits between pink and orange. Peach Fuzz marks the 25th anniversary of Pantone’s Color of the Year program. According to Pantone, this soft, heartfelt hue expresses the desire to nurture kindness, compassion, and connection—all while fostering a deep coziness as we seek a peaceful future.

Bars and restaurants from all over the country have crafted cocktail recipes that honor the color and utilize a variety of ingredients to give your drink that beautiful Peach Fuzz tint. We’ve rounded up the four best Peach Fuzz cocktails for your drinking pleasure. Continue reading down below for the origin of each cocktail followed by their recipes, so you can try these delicious drinks yourself!
