The Pink Flamingo

With it's bright pink and green colors, the Pink Flamingo will make you feel as confident as John Waters looks with his iconic thin mustache!

You may hear John Waters and think, popular director, producer, actor and American filmmaker. Or your mind may jump right to one of his more well-known works; whether that's his controversial 1972 Pink Flamingos or more mainstream, song filled Hairspray.

For us, all that career stuff comes second. If you've never seen Mr. Waters, take a look here. When we hear his name, especially now with the current mustache craze in full swing, the first thing we think of his is iconic 'stache.

Waters is one of the six men with facial duds that have inspired us to concoct a few mustache men inspired cocktails. This one, the Pink Flamingo, is a shout out to Waters' fame-making film.
