A Sip with Sparkle is one of RU’s newest and sassiest events. Featuring the wonderful creations of Kelowna’s queen of cocktails Sparkle, each event promises to be informative, a little lot bit inflammatory, and always innovative. Joining her for this special event will be Kelowna’s own Two-Spirit Goddess Ella Lamoureux.

What is A Sip With Sparkle?

She twinkles, she glistens, she sparkles…and she’s the Okanagan’s cocktail queen! Join the glimmering drag star Sparkle for A Sip with Sparkle, as she concocts a bevy of beverages live in person and on the interwebs. Known for her energy, charisma, sassy wit, and fabulous blonde hair — Sparkle serves up a delicious combination of glamour, alcohol, and witty repartee. With locally sourced ingredients and step-by-step instructions on how to create these luscious libations, you’ll be sipping (and, perhaps, snort-laughing) your way through each episode. Sounds fabulous, n’est-ce pas?

Tickets are $20+GST and include a welcome drink plus samples of Sparkle’s creations.

Not able to make it in person?  This show is also streamed live to Unicorns.LIVE!

Rebellious Unicorns has produced a variety of in-person events for the LGBT2Q+ community and allies, including the drag-focused extravaganza, FruitCake, and the business social, the MX. One of RUPC’s signature events, Peak Pride, is a winter pride festival held at mountain resorts in BC such as Big White, SilverStar, Sun Peaks, and RED Mountain Resort, attracting hundreds of attendees from Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rebellious Unicorns’ focus altered drastically when our team launched an online streaming service called Unicorns.LIVE. Unicorns.LIVE offers a platform for various types of entertainment by a diverse collection of creators. The service provides opportunities for participating artists and creators to be compensated for their work along with offering performance opportunities to those who have been adversely affected by the pandemic.

“This company was founded with one goal in mind: to create new, welcoming and inclusive opportunities for people to gather and celebrate,” says founder Dustyn Baulkham. “The pandemic brought about significant changes — we’re no longer just an events company."

Rebellious Unicorns produces Unicorns.LIVE, Unicorn Booth, Peak Pride, QUSIC, FruitCake, the MX., Voices Unheard, Dirty Mutter, Cub Crawl, and Sunset Sessions.

BC’s original farm-to-flask distillery now offers a selection of more than 30 internationally awarded spirits ranging from Single Malt , BRBN Bourbon-Style, BC Hopped, and BC Rye Whiskies, to Gins, Vodkas, Fruit Liqueurs and Brandies, to Aquavit and even Taboo Genuine Absinthe.
