Whimsical Purple Cocktail
II want to do something different. Whimsy is what I wanted to add to a recipe. Enter the latest craze right now, EVERYTHING UNICORN!
Yes, I have gone there. I went unicorn. However, I am going unicorn with a cocktail.
Wait! Before I get the haters go why? I have been in the mood to create a girly drink. Add a little shimmer to it and you got a girly unicorn adult beverage.
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.
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 the cocktail?
My first thought was maybe I would rim the glass in it. Truthfully, I always rim a glass in sugar for cocktails I have created for Seduction in the Kitchen. That thought went out the window.
Not the unicorn fun factor was going for. It looked more like a unicorn don’t. Yep, it was messy, and not in a good way.
Unicorn Kisses Cocktail Recipe
Would the pearl dust work if I mixed in the drink instead? It did! I was so happy when I saw the result.
It really gave that shimmer I wanted to this cocktail to have that Unicorn factor. 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 adult drink wow factor. It needs color and also taste good for a cocktail recipe.While I was at the liquor store I spotted a blue vodka.
That alcohol spirit was UV Blue Raspberry Vodka. The blue liquid just caught my eye when I spotted on the shelf. It looked like it would be electric blue unicorn color in the cocktail.
The store also had strawberry lemonade on sale. Lemonade and raspberry go well together. I think we have the perfect 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.
I was blown away by how good this cocktail turned out. It was exactly what I was going for. It is a sweet girly cocktail.
But this unicorn inspired drink also has the whimsical fun feel to it. It is a perfect UV Blue recipe. Plus it is also a great purple drink!
Truthfully this unicorn drink was perfect after a stressful week. I needed the unicorn whimsy to relax with. It did hit the spot.
Think this is the only Unicorn recipe I have done? Nope, I also did: No Churn Unicorn Ice Cream.
