What Happens in Vegas Mocktail

Prep Time:
5 mins

Chef notes

This is a nonalcoholic version of a classic Champagne cocktail … with a Vegas twist, of course! Cotton candy gives this drink fun color and sweet flavor.

Technique tip: The bitters in this recipe will really help balance out the sweetness of the candy and the wine.

Swap option: If you want to make this boozy, swap out the nonalcoholic wine with prosecco or Champagne.


  • Pop Rocks candy
  • lemon wedge
  • 1/2 ounce nonalcoholic aperitivo
  • pinch of sea salt
  • cotton candy
  • sparking nonalcoholic wine



Place the Pop Rocks on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Use a lemon wedge to wet the rim of the glass and dip in the Pop Rocks, coating the rim and sides.


Place the aperitivo into the bottom of the glass. Add a pinch of sea salt. Top with a big chunk of cotton candy.


Pour the sparkling wine on top and garnish with more cotton candy. Serve immediately.
