Put 3 ice cubes into a glass and start to carefully pour in the blue layer.

Crack open a lemon-lime ICE and add it into the prepared cup with the mixing tool. Letting the ICE carefully make a new layer.

Adding the lemon-lime layer.

What Does a Rocket Pop Cocktail Taste Like?

This Rocket Pop Cocktail is so delicious because of the berry flavors. In this cocktail, you get a blend of tart and sweet flavors. You have the raspberry flavor from the Vodka, the lemon-lime flavor from the ICE, and finally the Blue glacier from the Gatorade.

Can This Be Made Into a Frozen Drink?

This Rocket Pop can indeed be made into a frozen drink. You could possibly crush ice down and add each layer and pour the liquid. This may make it easier for you to have layers to your drink when frozen.
