A Unicorn’s Potion

This drink was inspired by our story on Unicorn Square called Magic in the Mountains.


  • 4 oz Tequila Rose
  • 4 oz Hpnotiq
  • 4 scoops of strawberry ice cream from Happy Pike Ice Cream and Snack Bar
  • 12 ice cubes
  • Sugar and food coloring


Pour sugar and a rainbow assortment of food dye on a plate, moisten the rim of a glass with agave, and dip the rim into the dyed sugar. Using two smoothie-style blenders, combine the Tequila Rose, half of the ice cream and half of the ice cubes in one. Pour the Hpnotiq and the remaining ice cream and cubes in the second blender. Blend both containers until the ice is broken down and the mixture is smooth and “frappe-like.” Spoon half of the pink mixture into the bottom of the prepared glasses, the blue hpnotiq mixture, then alternate to create a magical drink. Serve and enjoy.

Inspired from our story It’s all downstream from here.


  • 2 oz Captain Morgan White Rum
