The Pop Rockarita was made famous by Cocina 214, I was definitely slightly skeptical of the Pop Rock margarita combination at first. I guess Pop Rocks and tequila were two things I hadn’t ever thought to put together. This drink uses Pop Rocks mixed in with the tequila, as well as to coat the rim of the glass. So if your not a fan of that candy you may want to sit this one out! After it’s all said and done I have to admit it sounds cool and can be an interesting way to switch it up from the usual salt rim. You may even turn a couple heads while your at it.
