There they are, unassuming little bubbles, a few bits of color at the bottom of your Champagne flute or riding a raft of crushed ice in your Collins glass. Then they’re in your mouth and, with a very gentle bite, so is a burst of flavor — and a little bit of a buzz.
They’re called Cocktail Caviar, and right now Southern Nevada is the only place in the country where you can get them.
The little spheres of Cocktail Caviar are flavored vodka, each encased in a thin film of kelp. It’s kind of a grown-up version of Pop Rocks, only more gentle on the explosion end and much more tasty.
