Unicorn Slush – Vodka Slushie Cocktail

By  | Last Updated:  

Is everyone else’s home in full-blown unicorn obsession?

I have to admit, I’m fully embracing my 6 year old’s obsession and even made these Unicorn Slushies as a fun alternative to the infamous unicorn frapp – you can make them virgin for kids or alcoholic for grown-ups. Grab a straw and let’s dig in!

We’ve been making unicorn-themed treats all year long, ever since my daughter’s friend announced her unicorn-themed birthday party and look my daughter’s “unicorn curiousity” and threw it into a full-blown obsession!

We’ve made unicorn fluff fruit dip, unicorn soda floats, pastel & gold unicorn cupcakes and unicorn hot chocolate – but this unicorn slushie is something else!

Kind of like a homemade ICEE or slurpie, this unicorn slushie can be made two ways. One involves freezing soda ice cubes beforehand and the other can be made more spur of the moment.

I used a mixture of three sodas to make the perfect blend – clear cream soda, pink cream soda, and blackberry gingerale. Since the blackberry gingerale is seasonal, you can skip it if it’s not available when you’re looking to make this and the taste it adds is subtle so you won’t lose much 🙂

If you’re able to make ice cubes with the soda in advance, you will get the best color and flavor – however, if you don’t make pre-made soda ice cubes you may just want to add a drop or two of additional food dye to really bump up that pretty color.

Ingredients to Make a Unicorn Slushie

  • 1-12oz can pink cream soda
  • 4oz clear cream soda (Fanta brand)
  • 1-12oz can blackberry gingerale
  • 12 ice cubes (made with soda preferably)
  • Edible non-pareille pearls
  • Edible glitter
  • Vanilla or cake vodka, optional

This Unicorn Slushie is a delicious take on the slushie cocktail trend, with a subtle vanilla-blackberry taste and a beautiful presentation thanks to edible pearls and edible glitter. It would make a great addition to a brunch or backyard party.
