The Sipping Point

kiddie cocktail!

He can’t stay up ’til midnight, isn’t allowed to play with poppers, and won’t get any bubbly (not the good kind). Don’t let your mini reveler miss all the fun. Whip up a kid-friendly concoction created by mixologist Natalie Bovis-Nelsen (a.k.a. The Liquid Muse).

DailyCandy Kiddie Cocktail

1½ oz. pineapple juice
3 oz. guava juice
½ oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 oz. club soda
½ oz. grenadine
Pop Rocks (or colored sugar)

1. Hold a champagne flute upside down.

2. Rub the rim with a piece of lime to moisten, then dip it in a small plate filled with Pop Rocks so that they stick to the rim of the glass. Set aside.

3. Pour juices into a cocktail shaker, fill with ice, shake.

4. Gently strain into the candy-rimmed glass. Top with club soda.

5. Slowly pour in grenadine so that it settles toward the bottom of the glass, creating a slightly layered effect.
