Best summer drinks to combine with edible glitter

There’s something magical and irresistible in the summer drink recipes. Not to mention these cocktails suit seamlessly with edible dust.
So, let’s take a look at the best combinations:


The oldie but goodie Margarita. This is one of the favorite cocktails due to its few ingredients, easy preparation, and dazzling colors. And, a sprinkle of edible glitter is enough to boos it up.

You need:

  • Tequila
  • Ice
  • Lime juice
  • Elixir Orange (for the classic Margarita).

And for the Garnish:

  • Salt
  • Lime wedges
  • And that’s it.

You can also use Elixir Pink or Elixir Teal for this cocktail and get stunning results.


No presentation required. The mojito is the must-have and go-to on every summer day. And for many, the best drink to serve on the beach.
It only takes:

  • 1 ½ of white rum
  • Ice cubes
  • A handful of mint leaves
  • ½ of Club Soda (or tonic water)
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Elixir Green or Elixir Yellow
  • Ginger (optional)

Naturally, the lemon and the mint leaves give this cocktail a green hue. The yellow glitter harmonizes perfectly, creating a beautiful tropical combination, whereas the green maximizes the original hue.

Moscow Mule

This cocktail is another unmissable for the summer season. And the best part, it’s super easy to prepare:

  • ½ of vodka
  • ½ lime juice
  • ½ cup (four ounces) of ginger beer
  • Elixir Golden, Pink, or Blue
  • Lemon wedge for garnish

Piña Colada

The Pina Colada is a tropical reference and a favorite from the Caribbean. It only needs:

  • 1 ounce of white rum
  • 1 ounce of pineapple juice
  • 1 ½ ounce of coconut cream
  • Elixir Blue
  • Cherry and mini coconut for the garnish

The blue color harmonizes with the yellow perfectly. And the result is a dazzling cocktail that resembles the beach.

Other traditional cocktails to glitter.

The cocktails above are a must-have in every bar, restaurant, club, and party, but we have other excellent easy-to-make alternatives to glow up your drinks with edible glitter, such as:


  • The Martini is, surely, the most versatile cocktail and the one with most recipes. But the foundation is this:
  • ½ ounces of gin or vodka
  • ½ of vermouth
  • 2 olives
  • Elixir Dust

Since this cocktail is colorless, you can play with all the edible glitters of our repertoire.

Gin & Tonic

Like the Martini, the Gin & Tonic is perfect for a whole color palette. The traditional recipe is:

That’s all. Simple, elegant, and irresistible.

Long Island

This cocktail is a strong combination of four liquors and cola. You’ll need:

  • ½ ounce of white rum
  • ½ ounce of vodka
  • ½ of Gin
  • ½ of triple sec
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ounce of Cola
  • Orange edible glitter

The orange color is meant to intensify the natural color of the Long Island, resulting in an incredible mix.


This cocktail stands out for its alluring red color. However, a little bit of glitter can maximize its visual effect, creating a fantastic combination of reds. It takes:

  • 1 ½ of lemon vodka (or any citrus vodka)
  • 1 ounce of orange liquor
  • ½ ounce of lemon juice
  • ¼ ounce of cranberry juice
  • Elixir Red
  • Lime wedge for the garnish

Attractive, appealing, and seductive.
