Happy 4th of July! This is a day to celebrate our freedom and independence with family, friends, good food and great cocktails. And this cocktail involves a party in your mouth; or, more accurately, your cocktail glass rimmed in Pop Rocks. Tis BRILLIANT.
Blue Pop Rocks candy
4 ounces Coconut Rum
4 ounces Sparking cranberry juice
2 ounces Pineapple juice
Dampen the rims of 2 highball glasses with a lemon wedge, and then dip the rims onto a plate filled with the Pop Rocks candy. Next, carefully add ice to your glass and pour the coconut rum, sparkling cranberry juice and pineapple juice; gently stir. If desired, drop some Pop Rocks into your drink for some fun fizzing action.
