How Much Alcohol is in One?
Let’s face it; this unicorn cocktail is right up there with a Long Island. With Coconut rum, Tequila, and Cordial Liquor, you are putting 3-different alcohols into one glass. Altogether, you are looking at 2.5 shots of alcohol in one drink. A Long Island has around 3.5 shots. So, if you are little bit of a light-weight, make sure you drink it slowly.
