I don’t personally have an opinion about unicorns. Some people think they’re silly; some people think they’re the greatest fairy-tale thing in the world. If they existed in the more fantastical sense, such as a majestic horse with a giant horn in the middle of their head and pooped rainbows, well I’d be one of their biggest fans.
However since that’s just not the case, I don’t have a dog in the fight. But I love a great cocktail. And the nice people of Firebox have now let loose on the market of Unicorn haters and fans alike, Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur because everybody on either side of the unicorn discussion can agree, cocktail hour is awesome. And whether you like or dislike magical creatures, it would be cool to drink their tears!
Check it out for yourself on Firebox for only $65!
“Mixing the distinctive flavours of gin with the sweetness of a liqueur, this magical brew is also sprinkled with shimmering – 100% edible – pieces of silver.
Finally, we’d like to help you out with some tasting notes. Because that’s what we’re all about, making you happy. So do take heed…
Nose: Fragrant juniper rises from the glass alongside Curaçao orange and crisp lemon. Bruised mint leaves and fresh lemongrass brings herby freshness to the nose.
Palate: Big bundles of candied orange peels, flying saucer sweeties and a hint of maple syrup. Touches of pine-y juniper berries and cardamom introduce elements of spices.
Finish: Sweet, juicy orange freshness goes on and on throughout the finish.
There we have it. Now, go forth and guzzle*. The tears of this rare mythical steed make for a magnificent drinking experience.”
