Congrats to Jennifer, whose comment (and name!) were chosen in our drawing to celebrate A.C. Wise’s collection, The Ultra Fabulous Glitter Squadron Saves the World Again. Jennifer, here’s your drink — The Silver Rainbow!
From Sapphire’s Little Black Book of Cocktails
1/4 cup of blueberries
1 kiwi, chopped
1 1/2 pineapple rings, chopped
1/4 cup mango, chopped
1/4 cup raspberries
3 tablespoons plain yogurt
1 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp pomegranate juice
Edible Gold Dragees
Edible Silver Glaze (such as Sugarflair)
In a blender, combine 1/4 cup blueberries with 1 tbsp yogurt and blend until smooth. Set mixture aside in small bowl and rinse blender. Repeat with this step with the kiwi, then the pineapple.
Next, combine mango with 1 tbsp orange juice, blend and set aside. Repeat this with the raspberries and pomegranate juice. (Note: milk, vanilla yogurt, greek yogurt, or coconut milk can be substituted for plain yogurt in any or all layers.)
Once each separate smoothie layer has been prepared, drizzle Edible Silver Glaze into a tall parfait glass, turning the glass so the silver creates a swirl pattern as it runs down the sides.
Place a small number of Gold Dragee balls at the bottom of the glass. Carefully spoon blueberry mixture on top of the Gold Dragees, followed by kiwi layer, pineapple layer, mango layer, and raspberry layer. This drink is best enjoyed with a Crazy Straw — glittery, if possible!
This drink is time consuming, but, honey, it’s worth it. Not only is it pretty to look at, it’s even good for you. It’s got all the colors of the rainbow, plus a little silver for flair. Now some people might say rainbows are good enough on their own, but I say, if there’s an opportunity to add a little more shine to a situation, you take it. Like all good rainbows, this one even comes with its own pile of gold at the end.
