Drink of The Week

Red and Blue Pop Rocks Shooters

These patriotic shooters start out with crackle and fizz from the Pop Rocks candy (a sound reminiscent of fireworks) and end with a cool, smooth blend of sweet grenadine, cream and Schnapps. What could be more perfect for a Red, White, and Blue themed party? These drinks make a great addition to any 4th of July cookout, or you can even use them to kick off summer at your Memorial Day barbecue.

Here’s one quick tip, though: Don’t leave the half and half sitting outside in the sun. Always keep it refrigerated before and after mixing your drinks, and encourage guests to sip the shooters immediately, so that the cream can’t spoil

  • PopRock Shooter


  • Paint brush
  • Light corn syrup
  • Shot glasses
  • Red or blue Pop Rocks candy
  • Grenadine
  • Creamer or sprouted mixing cup
  • Half and half
  • Maui Blue Hawaiian Schnapps
  • Bar spoon


Spread the Pop Rocks candy on a clean cutting board or plate. Use the paint brush to brush light corn syrup around the rim of a shot glass, then dip the rim in the Pop Rocks, twisting to coat. Pour grenadine in the glass until it is 1/3 full.

In a creamer or a spouted mixing cup, mix one part half and half to two parts Maui® Blue Hawaiian Schnapps.

Slowly pour the creamy Schnapps mixture over a bar spoon or over the back of a spoon so that the dense mixture rests on top of the grenadine. Serve immediately.

TIP: For those of you who are skilled in “floating,” or layering drinks, omit mixing the half and half and Schnapps and simply layer the white and blue, too.
