Pop Rocks Margarita {Recipe}

Seriously, why do kids get to have all the fun?  It seems like skipping to the candy store, purchasing Pop Rocks with your hard-earned quarters, nickles, and dimes, is socially unacceptable.  That’s why I pretend they’re for the kids, and NOT my margarita.  No one will know.

Apparently, that’s what they do over at Cocina 214 in Winter Park, FL.  Dump the playground sand out of your shoes, skip on over to your favorite candy store,  pick yourself up some Pop Rocks to make this creative concoction on your own – after naptime of course.

Pop Rocks Margarita

1.5 oz Tierras Organic Tequila

.75 oz Sweet & Sour Mix

2 oz Cranberry Juice

1 oz diluted Lime Juice

1 oz Grand Marnier

1 pkg Pop Rocks

Add all ingredients together and shake.  Rim a 16 oz glass with Pop Rocks.  Pour contents into glass over ice.

Diluted Lime Juice: 3/4 lime juice, 1/4 water

Like what you see?  Show them some sugar…
