I always see all these videos on Facebook for food videos and they’re always turning food into unicorn something or other – cakes, pudding, coffee – you name it and it’s getting a rainbow, but I’ve never once seen them do it for a cocktail. And considering fun cocktails are my love language, I wanted to see what I could whip up in my own kitchen! This drink is equal parts sweet and tart, but fully delicious and perfect as an impressive party beverage. Dane even said – how did you keep those layers from mixing?!

The important thing to keep in mind for this recipe is the “order of operations”. Scientifically speaking, the different weights of the liquids is what keeps them from mixing. If you just pour them all in randomly, it won’t turn out as pretty 😉 Now, grab a short tumbler and let’s get started!

To make a drink for yourself, you will need:

1 shot raspberry syrup

1 cup ice

1 shot white rum (flavored if you want! I used plain) and 2 shots pineapple juice, mixed together

1 shot Curaçao (or if you prefer to skip a second liquor, 1 shot blue juice)

sprinkles for garnish

1 tsp. simple syrup for sprinkle rim

 

1. If you want a sprinkle rim, pour 1 tsp. simple syrup onto a plate. Dip tumbler into a bowl of sprinkles.

2. Once you have your sprinkle rim, pour in your raspberry syrup.

3. When the raspberry syrup has settled, add in 1 cup of ice.

4. Pour rum and pineapple juice mixture on top of ice.

5. Top with blue Curaçao and garnish with a few extra sprinkles.

6. Serve immediately!

You’ll want to make sure that you serve it right away, because the sprinkles DO have a tendency to slide down the glass. You can also had your own twist to this by choosing a flavored rum (I think raspberry would be a nice compliment!) or if you’re serving them at a party, have a DIY Confetti Cocktail station. The possibilities are endless, so have some fun with this one 😉

    The sprinkles are such a fun touch! I love simple drinks like this, especially because it gives us an excuse to restock the alcohol in this house haha.

    So darn pretty! This is something perfect for summer! I wonder if those sugar crystal sprinkles might stick better?

      Oh 100%! I have been on the hunt for multi colored sugar crystals at the store to no avail. Of course that’s a total Hawaii problem. I bet they are everywhere at JoAnn’s or Michael’s or hell, even just the grocery store on the mainland LOL! I’m heading back to PA in October and I’m totally stocking up on baking supplies!
