Do it for the ‘gram.

To us, Instagram has become the equivalent of a menu with pictures, save for the fact that IRL, such a thing usually signals a questionable dining experience. Our point: it’s a visual representation of what we’re going to get. And when it looks pretty and most likely definitely delicious? We want it, like the unicorn latte! It’s literal eye candy—blue, pink, and topped with little rainbow-colored confetti, created by Brooklyn-based cafe, The End. Naturally, we had them show us how we could make it at home—you know, in case you’re craving some fancy Sunday morning coffee.
