Pop Rocks on the Rocks…From the Recipe Box

Pop Rocks started as an ingredient to make carbonated water. Didn’t work. THEN it became a candy. People were too suspicious to eat it. (1950s) THEN people decided it was OK to eat and kids LOVED it only…parents suspected the Pop Rocks would explode in their kids’ stomachs if combined with soda.(1970s)  NOT TRUE – but the company was forced to take Pop Rocks off the market temporarily.

TODAY – Pop Rocks is enjoyed as an exciting and wonderful popping candy PLUS a great addition to cocktails.

Here are a few ideas:

Pop Rocks a la Margaritta: Add splash to your Margaritta with a Pop Rocks rim.

Pop Rocks with gin and lemon, gin and tonic, or plain old gin on ice…

Pop Rocks Vodka Bubbles: Take your favorite cocktail glass and rub the rim with simple syrup.  Dip the rim into a saucer filled with Pop Rocks. Add 2-ounces of your favorite vodka (they say vodka is tasteless, but don’t believe them) and 5-ounces of soda water. For extra pizazz, add a rock candy stirrer. The rock candy will add color to your drink – why not mix and match rock candy stick with colorful Pop Rocks?
