What is in the Unicorn Cocktail?

First of all, let’s be clear that the unicorn cocktail contains alcohol (gin and Blue Curacao). I mention this because of course we don’t want anyone underage getting tempted by how pretty the drink is. 

The Unicorn Cocktail contains:

  • 1/2 ounce Blue Curacao
  • 4 ounces of lemonade
  • 1.5 oz Rose Gin

This cocktail contains two ingredients that you might not be familiar with: Blue Curacao and Pink Gin. 

What is Blue Curacao?

How to make a blue mojito

Blue Curacao is a blue-colored citrus flavored liqueur made with the dried peel of the bitter orange laraha, a citrus fruit, grown on the Dutch island of Curaçao.

Traditional Blue Curacao does contain alcohol but it is possible to buy non-alcoholic versions. 

The most common non-alcoholic Blue Curacao is the Torani Blue Curacao Syrup.

What is Pink Gin and why is it so popular?

Aside from looking pretty, pink gin is popular for a number of reasons. 

First of all, pink gin tastes a lot less string than regular gin so it is much more popular for cocktails. The pink color comes from red fruits such as strawberries, red currents or raspberries added to the gin. 

There are several different brands of pink gin. For my cocktail, I am using Gordon’s Pink Gin. 

Is Pink Gin Full Of Sugar?

A lot of people think that pin gin is a sugary version of normal gin but it is simply gin with infused fruits.

There is no extra sugar added and the alcohol content is the same as regular gin.
