It’s National Unicorn Day, and what better way to get your legendary creature celebration on than with some mythological cocktails and shots? From dangerous dragons to magical mermaids, we promise you’ll find your spirit mythical-creature drink in the list below.

National Unicorn Day, meet Unicorn Shots. We can tell you all about the strawberry flavored liqueur, vodka, and milk in these little pink shooters, but just look at them: This is what magic is made of. View Recipe 

It’s hard to imagine a drink that could possibly deserve the name “Double Headed Dragon,” but we think this brilliant orange and red dual-drop flaming bomb shot most definitely earns the moniker. View Recipe

Speaking of dragons, here are the Dragon’s Breath Shots. They’re not quite as imposing as the Double Headed Dragon, but they contain a decent amount of absinthe, so be careful – these little shooters are just as dangerous as a dragon. View Recipe

How could we possibly have a list of mythological cocktails without Witches’ Brew? Thanks to some dry ice, this spooky drink looks like a bubbling cauldron, and we think you could probably cast some spells using this cocktail too. We cast a charm of… Blue Curaçao! View Recipe

For people who want to feel tipsy but still keep things light and breezy, we have the Pixy Dust Margarita. You can drink these all night and still keep a nice buzz going while you’re buzzing about, sprinkling your pixy dust around. View Recipe

Mermaid Punch is a delicious green bowl of booze that’ll have you swimming through magical sea stories in your head. (If magical sea stories persist after 24 hours, please go see a wizard.) View Recipe

Next up, we’ve got the brilliant Green Fairy, made with absinthe, peach schnapps, and melon liqueur. Whether you’re fond of fairies or partial to pixies, we guarantee this tastes like magic. View Recipe

If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, you’ll adore this Butterbeer recipe. With vanilla vodka, butterscotch schnapps, cinnamon schnapps, and cream soda, this magical treat tastes just as good as any brew at the Three Broomsticks! View Recipe

Speaking of Harry Potter, this gorgeous blue goblet of fire is the perfect cocktail to show off your fire-casting spells. But with lemonade, vodka, and Blue Curaçao, this fiery drink is surprisingly refreshing. View Recipe

Nessie might be a little camera-shy, but these Loch Ness Monster shots are ready for the spotlight! They’re super easy to make too, just layer melon liqueur, Irish cream and Jägermeister into a shot glass over back of a spoon. View Recipe

This bright green Leprechaun shot will certainly have you feeling lucky. Shake up Irish whiskey, coconut rum and melon liqueur in an ice-filled shaker, then strain into a gold sprinkle-rimmed shot glass! View Recipe

Finally, we’re finishing off this list with another nod to the unicorn. With white chocolate liqueur, whipped cream vodka, and Lucky Charms marshmallows on top, this decadent hot chocolate will have you floating over the rainbow! View Recipe
