Love Potion Number 9 is a sweet-spicy elixir perfect for celebrating love in a playful way. The pop rocks rim of the glass set things off with a bang!
Pour the pop rocks into a shallow saucer or other small plate.
Pour some of the raspberry simple syrup into a bowl large enough for the top of the glass to fit into.
Turn a glass upside down and touch just the top of the glass opening to the simple syrup; enough to moisten the rim only.
Place the glass opening down in the plate of pop rocks and rotate from side to side to coat with pop rocks. NOTE: The pop rocks can gently be pushed toward the outside of the glass to aid in coating.
Place the glass, still upside down, onto a clean surface and allow to sit for the pop rocks to dry onto the glass (approximately 10 minutes). This aids in the adherence to the glass.
Add the raspberry simple syrup and fill with ginger ale (NOTE: do not fill up to the pop rocks or they will begin to explode).
