Adding a little color to the day can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. While the colorful unicorn trend has been a food trend, the vibrancy that it adds is not limited to the plate. A bold color palette in the glass can have heads turning in the most delightful way. The Unicorn Daydream Cocktail, made with 14 Hands Unicorn Bubbles, might be the perfect libation for a brunch, bridal shower, or just a celebration with the ladies who lunch.

The mythical unicorn has a variety of meanings depending on the context. Beyond the fantasy world, the creature can often symbolize joy, positivity, and grace. Even if some people just look to that kaleidoscope of color and smile, the reality is that there is a moment of simple happiness in that visual.

When it comes to unicorn inspired food items, the color is only one part of the experience. Overall, the flavors need to be light, airy, and sometimes just whimsical. Although sweet notes often flavor the experience, the reality is that there needs to be balance of lightness yet slightly substantial in the enjoyment. Even if some people sing about a spoon full of sugar, the reality is that an overly cloying note is not a magical sip.

Recently, 14 Hands expanded its Unicorn Bubbles line. While many people are familiar with the rose option, this white version is an extension of that magical sipping. The bright aromatics with crisp acidity make for lovely food pairings. From a warm gooey, baked brie to a spicy spring roll, the possibilities are many.

In addition to the delightful pour on its own, the Unicorn Bubbles are perfection in a cocktail. 14 Hands have shared its suggestion, a Unicorn Daydream Cocktail. Here’s how to make the special beverage.
