Try the Salty Donut's Rainbow Unicorn Doughnut
Daily through Friday, May 5
Brace yourself, Miami: The first rainbow doughnut has arrived. The Salty Donut has created its most colorful flavor yet, and half of all proceeds will benefit Style Saves, a charity created by stylist Rachael Russell that nightlife guru David Grutman and his wife, Isabela Rangel Grutman, are involved with. Nicknamed the "unicorn doughnut," the limited-edition treat will be available for purchase through Friday, May 5, at the Salty Donut (50 NW 23rd St., Miami). Nearly double the size and thickness of traditional Salty Donut treats, the unicorn doughnut doesn't come cheap: Each costs $10. The 24-hour brioche dough is hand-dyed, creating a green, blue, orange, red, and yellow rainbow. Then it's infused with a homemade citrus marshmallow fluff and topped with a vanilla bean glaze and homemade marshmallow crisps.
