Do love the movie Encanto and want a tasty cocktail to go with your viewing?
You’ll love this delicious gin martini.
This shimmering cocktail is inspired by the popular Disney Movie and was inspired after my 7th time watching the movie with my kids this past weekend.
If you don’t know Spanish, you might not know that Encanto means charm and I think you will agree that this cocktail is indeed magical and charming.
It looks so pretty that it’s great for celebrations of all kinds and great for those who want an adult beverage for a birthday party or other event.
This Encanto cocktail is delicious and really easy to make. I added a sparkling pink rim to the glass for a little extra.
What’s in the Encanto martini?
The Encanto martini is really easy to make with only 4 ingredients. The alcohol in the drink are white rum and gin.
I made this Encanto cocktail with Empress Gin which gives it the beautiful violet color.
If you are not familiar with this gin, you will love it. It is made with eight organic botanicals and the lilac hue comes from Butterfly pea blossom.
To make this drink you need:
- Empress Gin
- White Rum
- Lemon Lime Soda
- Blue Edible Glitter
I got my blue glitter from Amazon. It is so great for adding a shimmer to any kind of cocktail or mocktail you want to make.
I also used pink sparkle sugar for the rim but you can skip this if you want.

How To Make A Pink Glitter Rim
Lastly, let’s talk about that glittery rim! Entirely optional, this gives your cocktail the perfect Encanto charm and makes it much more magical.
To make the rim you need clear honey (the runny kind) and pink sanding sugar.
It is so easy to make the rim:
- Spread pink sugar on a plate or large bowl in an even layer.
- Put honey on another plate
- Tilt the martini glass into the honey so that it sticks to the outside edge.
- Next dip the rim into the pink sugar. Set aside for a few minutes before making your cocktail
