If you've noticed a pink takeover on your social media feed lately, it's likely thanks to the new Barbie movie.

Barbie and Ken's new film from producer Greta Gerwig premieres Friday, July 21. When it does, the IRL take on the iconic blonde doll — this time starring Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken — will undoubtedly deliver all the nostalgic Mattel vibes you could hope for.

When creating Barbie Land, it's rumored the movie caused a global pink paint shortage thanks to its over-the-top, fuschia-hued sets and scenes.

Regardless of whether you plan to see the movie, you can still celebrate the iconic couple's big-screen debut with all the pink-themed food and drink Miami offers. Here are our picks for the most creative pink drinks to toast Barbie in the Magic City.

Beauty & The Butcher

6915 Red Rd., Coral Gables
Barbie and friends would approve of the "Belle Rose" at Jeremy Ford's Beauty & the Butcher. Made with gin, bergamot liqueur, and a malbec-hibiscus reduction, this hot-pink stunner is a fine accompaniment while you peruse the menu at Ford's Coral Gables restaurant. Favorites here include sharable dishes like the dry-aged Japanese yellowtail crudo, a Wagyu beef tenderloin, and, for dessert, the honey-roasted Dutch baby.

Barbie fans can enhance their Barbie viewing experience at CMX's Miami-Dade locations, including the CMX Brickell Dine-In or CMX CineBistro in CityPlace Doral, with summer-inspired cocktails that are pretty and pink. Pair the Barbie movie with the "Sun-Kissed Soiree," a drink that's both sweet and tart, thanks to its fusion of tequila, lime, and pink dragonfruit puree finished with a black sea salt rim.

Higher Ground

2217 NW Miami Ct., Miami
Drink pink this week at Higher Ground, the urban-inspired beer garden located on the third floor of Arlo Wynwood, with two tropical-inspired pink cocktails. The guayaba mojito offers a bubbly guava take on the classic cocktail mixed with Havana Club rum, fresh-pressed sugarcane juice, and basil before it's swizzled with guava and topped with sparkling wine and served in a pale pink glass. There's also the Instagram-worthy "Inca Orchid" — a mix of Patrón Blanco, pisco, lime, and lemon shaken with housemade chicha morada that gives it a blushing pink hue.

Pink Taco

1200 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach
Pink Taco should be on every Barbie fan's to-do list. Housed inside a vibrant, pink-themed atmosphere, it's quite possibly the Magic City's most Barbie-approved venue. Why? The South Beach restaurant is best known for its fuschia-infused menu, from the OG pink tacos and churro pancakes to the pink sundae. In true Barbie fashion, start the evening with a few pink drinks, including the strawberry margarita or frozen guava sangria, a tantalizing blend of guava nectar and sparkling rosé.

Rosa Sky Rooftop

525 SW Eighth St., Miami
At this trendy Brickell rooftop, soak in Miami's pink-hued sunset skies and the glittery downtown panorama while sipping on their signature martini. The eponymous cocktail is the perfect pink shade thanks to its strawberry lemongrass vodka mix. The finishing touch, a rose-colored, rose-shaped ice cube, is most certainly Barbie-approved. In celebration of the movie premiere, Rosa Sky will host a Barbie-themed takeover July 21-23, when guests can sip on an added assortment of pink cocktails crafted especially for the occasion.

The combination makes for an ideal balance of tart, sweet, and Barbie vibes.

Sugar Factory

1575 Alton Rd., Miami Beach
Sugar Factory's over-the-top pink interior and rainbow-hued menu items are literally what we'd imagine Barbie's fantasy food and drink dreams are made of. Feeling inspired? Stop by for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner and order one of their pink smoking goblets overflowing with colorful candies, insane milkshakes, or maybe the "Pink Unicorn" hot chocolate. Served in a pink mug and topped with a colorful drizzle, it's the ideal way to toast Barbie in Miami.
