Cocktails That Remind You of Your Childhood

OK, I admit, I only posted this initially because it cracked me up...and reminded me of my childhood...we used to do this with Kool-Aid and Pop-Rocks, so it's only fitting that we move Pop Rocks to a more adult beverage! For those of you who somehow missed out on the Pop Rock phenomena in your childhood, Pop Rocks are candy that makes a crackling sound as it hits your tongue.  They come in an assortment of flavors. 

For the bridal couple with a sense of humor, just rim your cocktails with these popping candies so they explode on the tongues of your guests.  These recipes found on Pizzazzerie's web site are just a few good combos for either cocktails or mocktails using these fun candy rocks.  Use these or make your own combos.  Half the fun of these is creating your own versions of Pop Rockin' Cocktails and taste testing them.  More recipes on Pop Rocks web site.

How do you make Pop Rock cocktails? According to Pizzazzerie "Simply dampen the edges of your glass with lemon juice. If you have trouble with the pop rocks clumping or sticking, you can try dipping them in a thin layer of caramel (but only use a small amount).Then dip the rims into a plate filled with the pop rocks of choice. You can also simply drop the POP ROCKS into your cocktail for a festive FIZZLE!
