Magical Unicorn Cocktails
Rainbows and unicorns aren’t just for kids anymore. From enjoying pastel unicorn toast to warming up with pretty unicorn hot chocolate, it seems everyone is embracing the legendary creature these days. Rainbows, sparkles, and glitter are all wonderful but there is something that can make them even better. That’s wine!
Yes, we believe it’s time for some unicorn wine. You read that right. Unicorns just pranced over the rainbow from the kids table to your next 21-and-over soirée.
Add a whimsical touch to your next party with these Magical Unicorn Cocktails.

The rainbow unicorn cocktail starts with a pretty pink sparkling wine! Our Blush Bubbly is the perfect bright and fruity base for your seriously fun party drink. You’ll combine the wine with vanilla infused cranberry-raspberry juice. It’s a twist on the mimosa, a magical rainbow unicorn mimosa twist.
Colorful Candy Toppings
Now, let’s give that drink a magical unicorn makeover with a rainbow explosion of sweet toppings.
Prepare your glass by spreading a thin layer of strawberry frosting around the rim. We used Pillsbury, but you could make your own if you’d like. Then, dip the frosted glass into rainbow sprinkles.
Add a swirl of homemade whipped cream on top. We used the Wilton 1M pastry tip for this. Canned whipped cream isn’t strong enough to hold the candy. Plus, it doesn’t taste nearly as good as the real stuff.
Add a pink swirly lollipop for your unicorn horn. We used strawberry flavored pops from Party City.
These colorful Twizzlers make the perfect magical rainbows to finish off your unicorn cocktail.
