Powerpuff Martini

I've been waiting for the right garnish for this one for a while. After discovering Bubblegum Vodka, I knew another custom martini was in the works. Most of the Bubblegum martinis I've seen were more or less bubblegum flavored vodka on the rocks, so I endeavored to come up with something unique that complemented this flavor, but didn't distract from it. The result is mixing peach and bubblegum together.

Furthermore, I knew I wanted to add pop rocks to the rim, but had to find a way to add them without setting them off immediately. Using grease instead of liquid accomplishes this nicely. So buttering the rim allows the pop rocks to adorn the glass rim without "popping" right away.

This is most definitely the girliest cocktail in my mix of martinis, but yet it's completely delicious. :)
  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Three Olives Bubble Vodka
  • 1 oz Peach Schnapps
  • Butter
  • Pop Rocks
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Run a slice of butter around the glass and rim it with the pop rocks. Shake the ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Strain into the glass.
