by loverly on

This year, we're turning Valentine's Day into something far more fun and not limited to romantic love: Palentine's Day! In the spirit of partying with all your pals (just like we did in grade school!) we've put together a plan for a 90s-themed bash that your guys, gals, family, and pets will all love. Read on to learn how to make our Palentine's Day party's signature drink: Capri Sun-flavored cocktails served in glasses rimmed with Pop Rocks.

Capri Sun and Pop Rocks Cocktail Recipe

As children of the 90s, we'll always have a special place in our hearts for Capri Sun (even though it was so darn hard to open without help in the cafeteria)! For our February fete, we decided to give it a grown up-twist by turning that unmistakable juicy flavor into a boozy brunch drink and adding a fun twist by rimming the glasses with Pop Rocks.

Capri Sun and Pop Rocks Cocktail Recipe

Ingredients

3 cups light rum (plain or pineapple)
1 cup pineapple juice
2 cups Sprite
2 cups Island Blue Pucker Schnapps
1/4 cup cranberry juice
4-8 packets of Pop Rocks candy (one packet does one glass with a bit left over)
One lime, cut in wedges

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher and stir.
To rim glasses, pour Pop Rocks onto a plate in a circular shape. Rub lime wedges around the rims of your glasses to get them wet. Dip rim into Pop Rocks and grind back and forth gently to help the candy stick. Garnish with colorful straws.
(Serves eight)
