Enjoy your Strawberry PopRockTini, but please drink responsibly!
If you follow me on Twitter, you couldn’t help but notice that I spent last weekend in Atlanta catching up with my blogging buddies and some amazing PR gals at #TypeACon. We always have at least one amazing theme party, and this year’s theme was Come As You Are (The 90’s). The amazing parties always have “signature drinks”. This year, we had The Caucasian (White Russian) and Nerdtinis.
During one of our Meet and Great sessions with some PR reps, I picked up some Pop Rocks off one of the tables. They were part of a catchy little promo one of the PR companies was utilizing. I forgot about the Pop Rocks until I got home and started unpacking. When I found them, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.
Despite the fact that they pop and crack as soon as they hit your tongue, you can rim a glass with Pop Rocks. Of course, you could still make a PopRockTini without rimming the glass, but the extra PopRocks look cool and their just fun too.
An immersion blender (or stick blender, as some people call it) is the bees knees for making drinks like this. It’s way less messy that dragging out the traditional blender, and you can quickly rinse and move on to making a different kind of drink without having to really wash anything. Check out how easy this is…
- PopRocks Candy
- Pinnacle Strawberry Shortcake Vodka
- Combine 3 or 4 fresh strawberries, 4 ounces of vodka and 2 oz of milk.
- Blend well.
- Slice a strawberry for garnish.
- Run the strawberry around the rim of the glass to wet it.
- Dip the moist rim into the PopRocks to rim the glass.
- Add a small scoop of PopRocks to the bottom of the glass.
- Pour the strawberry/vodka mixture into the glass.
- Garnish with additional PopRocks.
Clearly, you could make this with any flavor of PopRocks, just change up your fruit and vodka accordingly! If you like this recipe, be sure to Pin it for later, and follow me on Pinterest for more awesome recipes, crafts and more!
