NAILED IT OR FAILED IT: Making Your Own Magic on National Unicorn Day

It's time to get in touch with your inner unicorn, friends

If you have an old water bottle laying around, you can become a unicorn!

On Friday, April 9th, 2021 during Nailed It Or Failed It on Good Morning Quad Cities, we made these Unicorn Horn Bubbles. All you need for this magical craft is a water bottle, scissors, an old sock or washcloth, a rubber band, dish soap, water, and food coloring. 

Click the video above to see how all these items work together - and who NAILED IT... becoming the brightest, bestest unicorn of them all on the GMQC Anchor Team!

Friday, Jon decided to make a Unicorn Drink Martini, in honor of National Unicorn Day. 

According to Dining With Alice, here are the ingredients you need:

  • An ounce of Rum Chata
  • An ounce of Bacardi 
  • 1 1/2 ounces Pomegranate Juice
  • ½ cup Cool Whip
  • Lucky Charms Marshmallows

Here are the instructions: In a martini shaker, combine 4-5 ice cubes, Rum Chata, Mango Rum, and Pomegranate Juice. Pour drink into martini glasses. Spread the Cool Whip on the surface of the martini (this will keep the cotton candy from melting) and then garnish with the Lucky Charms Marshmallows. You can also serve the drink without Cool Whip and the Lucky Charms Marshmallows. Simply pour the drink into the martini glasses and serve.
