Sly Not Shy: The Origin of pinkSQRL
The pinkSQRL brand (pronounced "pink squirrel") is modern, urban, and minimalist with a subtle sense of humor and whimsy. It's a way to stand out without shouting from the rooftops - think "sly not shy."
I got the idea for pinkSQRL from spending time with a particularly close-knit group of my friends. We had started to develop our own internal lingo and started calling each other "squirrel" as a rhyming twist on "girl" (as in, "hey girl!"). Soon the term took on a life of its own, picking up a unique spelling and a little color on the way to becoming pinkSQRL.
I thought it would be great to share the pinkSQRL personality with the rest of the world, and pinkSQRL officially launched in 2010.

Is there an official pinkSQRL alcoholic beverage of choice?
So glad you asked! Some of you may have heard of a drink called the "pink squirrel" that involves almond cream and apricot pits, but true connosieurs know that a pinkSQRL is a delicious drink that mixes orange vodka with Fresca and a splash of cranberry juice for that distinctive pink color. (Not a Fresca fan? Sprite Zero or Diet 7-Up will do in a pinch!)
