Bomb Pop Shots

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!

Ingredients
  • 1/3 ounce Sprite *
  • 1/3 ounce lemon vodka *
  • 2/3 ounce blue curacao
  • 2/3 ounce grenadine
  • ice
  • *Note: Can use Mike's Hard Lemonade or Smirnoff Ice in place of these
  • Shot Glasses
Instructions
  1. Mix the Sprite and vodka in a shaker with some ice to chill it.
  2. Strain into glass.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
Notes
I love these Shot Glasses and any of these at the TKW Amazon Store!

 

More deliciousness awaits...:

    Looks refreshing & the name is too big also. Does the bomb really blast or it’s too common I must be experiencing this.

    • TKWAdmin says:

      Hi Suheir,

      The name is taken off of the frozen ice novelty ‘Bomb Pops’. See those frozen treats were layered (red, white and blue) in a rocket type shape. I think they used the name ‘Bomb Pop’ as a way of describing how the flavors would ‘explode’ in your mouth with such amazing tastes.

      I know in my area, in my freezer section of my local grocery store/market these frozen novelties are still sold. I think the flavors were red – cherry, white – lemon and blue – blue raspberry.

      Best Kitchen Wishes!

    For the record, a “shot” comes in a shotglass and does not contain a crapload of ice. Might want to think about a new name. Other than that, interesting drink.

    • TKWAdmin says:

      Hi Terry,

      Thanks; I know this. The directions say to strain thus no ice in the glass. The pic/glass/ice was most likely done for aesthetics. Sometimes a straight shot is really hard to get an awesome shot of. I can take one without in a real shot glass. Lord knows I have like 40 or so of ‘em around the house!

      Best Kitchen Wishes!

    uv blue, cranberry schnapps, a splash of sour mix all shaken together and strained then topped with sprite also tastes just like these, in case you ever need a quicker and easier way to make these :D

  • Wow it looks very nice, how can you make it beautiful?

  • Janice Bedell says:

    I would like to make these without the alcohol. I know someone did. Any idea what they used.

    • TKWAdmin says:

      Hi Janice!

      Yes you can make this kid friendly. I like the following mixture:
      1 Cup Red CranApple juice
      1 Cup White Pina Colada flavored drink
      1 Cup Blue Gatorade
      Ice

      This is the important part
      Fill your glass 1/3 of the way full with CranApple juice.
      Next add in the ice filling all the way to the top.
      Slowly pour the Pina Colada on top 1/3 of the way up and then the Blue Gatorade.

      Best Kitchen Wishes!

    Does it look the same I’m trying to make a fourth of July drink that sits in a pitcher

    • TKWAdmin says:

      It will stay like that in a pitcher until you pour it as obviously the liquids then mix due to the agitation/movement.

      Best Kitchen Wishes!
