Growing up my all time FAVORITE frozen treat were Bomb Pops! Those ‘rocket’ shaped Popsicles that were blue raspberry on the bottom, lemon in the middle and cherry on top. And I’m sure by now you all know what I did with the cherry portion. Yep, you guessed it! I cut or broke that section off. Sorry but I just don’t do cherry.
Well when I turned 21 I discovered Bomb Pop Shots. They taste EXACTLY like those childhood frozen treats (that I STILL love and that I still break the cucka cherry portion off). These pack a punch to say the least!
So whether you’re celebrating the 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day or Tuesday, enjoy but please drink responsibly and never drink and drive!
- 1/3 ounce Sprite *
- 1/3 ounce lemon vodka *
- 2/3 ounce blue curacao
- 2/3 ounce grenadine
- *Note: Can use Mike's Hard Lemonade or Smirnoff Ice in place of these
- Shot Glasses
- Mix the Sprite and vodka in a shaker with some ice to chill it.
- Strain into glass.
- Using a spoon turned upside down angled into the vodka mix just to slightly break the surface, very slowly pour the blue curacao. It must be done with patience, or the two will mix and you won’t get the same effect. You’ll see the white layer begin to exist.
- Next add in the grenadine. The easiest way to do this is to pour close to the ednge of the glass to create an almost waterfall effect inside the glass. Since the grenadine is so thick, it’ll drop to the bottom of the glass.
