Special Cocktail Ingredients
To give this drink the shimmer and the “Unicorn” portion of it. I had to actually think outside the box. In all honesty, the alcohol I was looking for I found out isn’t available in Cleveland anymore.
I was looking for that wow factor. The liquor was this purple shimmery stuff, but it was not to be found. So, Ms. Dee needed to get creative to give this cocktail its whimsical look.
Enter in my old hobby of cake decorating. Wait what, cake decorating? Yes, you read that right, cake decorating can help with the creation of fun drinks.
I know there is something called luster dust or pearl dust. It gives the shimmer effect on cakes. So why could I not use that in sweet mixed drinks?
Sweet Alcoholic Drinks
My first thought was maybe I would rim the glass in it. Truthfully, I always rim a glass in sugar for the sweet alcoholic drinks I have created for Seduction in the Kitchen. That thought of sugaring the rim of the glass went out the window.
That is not Not the unicorn fun factor I was going for for these unicorn drinks. I wanted these purple cocktails to be fun drinks not messy.

Would the pearl dust work if I mixed in the drink instead? It did! I was so happy when I saw the colorful cocktails.
It really gave that shimmer I wanted to these purple cocktails. I had the start of unicorn drinks. Still, it needed something else to make it say I am a girly drink!
The answer to that was edible glitter stars! I saw these edible glitter stars at the cake supply store and was like yes! Those stars are perfect for a Unicorn cocktail.
I needed that fun cocktails wow factor. That is the alcoholthat makes sweet mixed drinks. While I was at the liquor store I spotted a blue vodka that would be perfect for fun cocktails.
That alcohol spirit was UV Blue Raspberry Vodka. The blue liquid of UV Vodka just caught my eye when I spotted on the shelf. It looked like it would be perfect for unicorn drinks.
Creating Unicorn Cocktail
The store also had strawberry lemonade on sale. Lemonade and raspberry go well together. I think that is a great combination to make this fun girly cocktail.
So let the unicorn cocktail development begin. After all, we do need fun adult drinks, do we not? That is the purpose of making a unicorn cocktail.
