If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past week, you know Starbucks recently came out with a limited edition Unicorn Frappuccino. And everyone agreed it looked great but tasted like sh*t. And now they have the Unicorn Lemonade… Which also isn’t getting rave reviews.
We’re here to let you know there’s a unicorn drink you will actually enjoy (if you’re over 21, that is). It looks like sparkly, liquid cotton candy. It tastes like a sweet, coconut creation. It’s the Loco Unicorn.
That’s right people. A boozy unicorn drink that tastes GOOD. We’ve talked about Captain Morgan’s new LocoNut before on Drinking in America. But ICYMI, it’s a summer-inspired shot that blends Caribbean rum and spices with seasonal flavors – including real coconut liqueur. And it is the key to making this colorful unicorn cocktail taste delicious.
Forget everyone’s posts showing off their Starbucks Unicorn drinks; make your Snapchat story, Instagram story, Facebook story and whatever other story exists now put theirs to shame.
Instructions: Wet the rim of a 13 oz. highball glass with water and dip the glass in edible glitter to form a rim. Fill the glass with ice, and then add the coconut water and Captain Morgan LocoNut and stir. Drizzle the Grenadine over the cocktail first so it sits at the bottom, and then drizzle the Curacao second, so it sits on the top.
