After I made my Mini Strawberry Shortcake Poppers recently, I couldn’t quite get over my fascination with Pop Rocks (which would be my way of saying I couldn’t get enough of those darn little candies!!!). Pop Rocks work great to line glass rims for your favorite drinks. I had some fresh watermelon in the house AND Watermelon Pop Rocks so what was a girl to do??? I went to the nearest liquor store, bought some watermelon vodka, and next thing I knew I was making a Watermelon Poptini!
This is a great summer drink, but you can’t exactly have this Watermelon Poptini all by itself for dinner tonight can you? Ok, maybe you could, but you’ll need to eat eventually so check out my friend’s great weekly meal plans at Couponchaosmama. She has a lot of info on some great deals and coupons and she also is doing a giveaway so you could win a gift card to the grocery store of your choice! Free groceries are always nice!!!
Speaking of giveaways, my Snappy Gourmet Summer Giveway is still going on, so be sure to enter if you haven’t already. Lots of giveaways and a great summer drink; not a bad day, huh???
