Speaking of making your drinks fun!! Add Pop Rocks to the edge of your drinks!! Whether for your margaritas or the little one’s drinks!! They will get a huge kick out of the little fireworks popping in their mouths!!

Every holiday needs a signature cocktail. I humbly propose the super fun and super delicious Firecracker Margarita for the 4th of July. It

Add Pop Rocks to everything!!! Sprinkle on top of your cupcakes (I saying go get those store bought ones lol and add a POP!!) Don’t put them on until right before serving though!! If they sit too long, especially onto of icing, they get moisture in them and losing their pop!! (At least that happened to me once!!)
