If you’ve ever found yourself wishing your cocktails were more colorful or your unicorn lattés were just a little more festive, look no further than Gristmill, Brooklyn’s new Unicorn Fizz, a sparkly take on a Ramos Gin Fizz.

The new cocktail came about as a happy accident after Gristmill beverage director Kyle Eberle goofed the recipe for a Ramos Gin Fizz but didn’t want the drink to go to waste. He decided to experiment, adding a touch of pamplemousse liqueur, a smidge of blue curacao and a drizzle of grenadine… and the Unicorn Fizz was born!

Available for $13, the Unicorn Fizz can also be made with fresh orange juice for those who prefer their unicorns dry.
