Popsugar's color-changing summer margarita is inspired by the massive unicorn obsession that has taken over social media in recent months. The recipe was created by Ashley Rose Conway, and sparkling water brand Izze.
Izze is known for offering refreshing, and boldly flavored water blends like its best-selling raspberry which is featured in this particular recipe. In addition to Izze sparkling water, this color-changing summer margarita features ingredients like a 1/4 cup of dried butterfly pea flower petals, lime juice, tequila, triple sec, and syrup.
Before it is ready to serve, the unicorn margarita is garnished with a hint of salt and topped of with fresh mint sprigs. The margarita's color-changing effect is the result of blue pea flower ice cubes that alter the cocktail's consistency and hue when added to its initial pink mixture -- ultimately creating a dreamy, ombre tone.
