These sparkly colorful liqueur spirits are a great way to add a touch of sparkling pizzaz to any cocktail that lists liqueur as an ingredient! Melon Ball? More like Glitter Ball. Margarita? More like Magic-rita. You can also use them to create your own, glitter-infused cocktail concoctions like we did!
Here's how to make your own shimmery liqueurs:
- Flavored, colorful liqueur - so what we used below
- Various Brew Glitter colors
- Clear glass containers with lids
Match Up Your Colors
To keep your sparkly liqueur colorful long-term, it's important to use Brew Glitter® dusts & glitters that corresponds to the color of your liqueur. If you use Silver Brew Glitter® as an example, the silver color infuses into the liqueur and turns it a mottled, gray hue. You can shop around on our website until you find the perfect glitter colors to match your needs!
Here are the pairings the Brew Glitter® team used:
- Pink Liqueur Shimmer: 12 oz passion fruit liqueur + 3/4 tsp Pink Brew Glitter
- Orange Liqueur Shimmer: 12 oz peach liqueur + 1/4 tsp Yellow Brew Glitter + 1/2 tsp Bronze Brew Glitter
- Yellow Liqueur Shimmer: 12 oz banana liqueur + 3/4 tsp Yellow Brew Glitter
- Green Liqueur Shimmer: 12 oz melon liqueur + 3/4 tsp Green Brew Glitter
- Blue Liqueur Shimmer: 12 oz blue curacao + 1/2 tsp Purple Brew Glitter + 1/4 tsp Blue Brew Glitter
- Purple Liqueur Shimmer: 12 oz sloe gin + 3/4 tsp Purple Brew Glitter
Mix It Up
Pour your favorite flavored liqueur into a clear glass bottle, add Brew Glitter and stir. It's important to use room temperature liqueur to ensure the glitter dust mixes easily and completely. Add a lid and store your new shimmery spirit at room temperature until ready to serve. Before serving, simply give it a shake to re-mix the Brew Glitter® and liquid.
How to Serve
The traditional way to serve shimmery liqueur: Fill a shaker with ice. Pour shimmery liqueur over ice and shake for about 15 seconds. Fill a martini glass 3/4 full, then top with sparkling wine or Moscato.

The basic ingredients for alcoholic cocktails normally include a type of spirit, a liqueur, fresh fruit, sugar, citrus, ice, juice and spices or bitters. These ingredients are then layered to achieve a beautifully balanced beverage that treads the fine line between sweet, sour, bitter and thirst-quenching.
The most popular spirits for the making of cocktails include rum, whisky, tequila, vodka, and gin. Liqueurs come in a wide array of colors and flavors, and the combination between these two liquids create a wide scope for experimentation that can be explored in many imaginative ways with the addition of fresh fruit, and other enhancers such as edible, FDA-approved, Halal-friendly glitter.
Naturally, it's also possible to make layered cocktails without an alcohol base. These are called mocktails and are exceedingly popular at daytime events, and occasions where children are present. Health-conscious individuals also often prefer to enjoy a beverage that does not contain any alcohol, and in cases like these it's a nice touch to add some glitter to make a more interesting drink that goes beyond a mere cola or juice.
