Scout, your question sent me all over. The term comes from the days of sailing when ships would get stuck on the rocks, and became used as a reference for anything in trouble (such as a marriage on the rocks).

However, in reference to the term being used for drinks, I couldn't find anything definitive but there were several interesting theories. The first suggested it was a phrase coined from a play named "On The Rocks" by George Bernard Shaw, written in 1933. The next was an etymology dictionary that claimed it was first used in 1946 (but it didn't say why). A third option came from a food and drink website hosted in England that claimed it was used often during the Depression, where drinks were cheaper if they were watered down.

But my favorite explanation of the term came from who wrote "the term 'on the rocks' stems from putting ice-cold volcanic pumice in the whiskey - it cools it down, efficient heat exchange because of the sponge-like structure, but it doesn't add water."

That reminds me of the phallus tower on the cover of Disney's The Little Mermaid, which Disney claims was purely accidental. Hah! Like the minister getting an erection during the wedding scene and the word SEX in the clouds in The Lion King were accidental too.
