Party Fun – Strawberry PopRockTini

Enjoy your Strawberry PopRockTini, but please drink responsibly!

Strawberry Pop Rock MartiniIf 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.

      So sorry, Trisha! I have a VA that links things up for me… she must have not realized. I have a little bit of everything here, so I’m sure she just mixed up what should’ve been where. 🙂
