Boozy and patriotic Prosecco Popsicles are the cutest way to show your colors this holiday weekend! Berries and frozen champagne make for a darling red, white and blue treat you can enjoy anytime! (Watch the video to learn how to make them!)
It’s Popsicle Week! Arguably the best week of the year, when a bunch of bloggers get together to share our love for popsicles.
But why just a week? I always try to make popsicles all summer long.
Our house gets ridiculously hot by, like, 3 p.m. or earlier. And when you work from home, it’s VERY noticeable.
Popsicles always come to my rescue.
To beat the heat, I’m planning to make more of my favorite popsicles this summer.
For hot mornings, these Yogurt Parfait Breakfast Popsicles are so fun.
Last summer, Chris and I shot our first video together, of these Swirled Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles, and we are SO making them again. (It was so fun to make a new popsicle video together, too — scroll down to watch!
And I’m adding a new one into the mix this year. I decided to do Popsicle Week right with a batch of boozy Prosecco Popsicles.
Frozen bubbly is going to be your new favorite way to cool down this summer.
These popsicles are perfect for July 4, which is somehow next week already? (How?!)
You can use any fruit, really, but I tossed in blueberries and strawberries for a red, white and blue twist. I am so pleased with how these turned out!
The prosecco base combines bubbly and a super small batch of homemade lemonade for a little extra flavor and sweetness. Learn how to choose a sparkling wine.
Overall, though, these babies are light and delicious, and I recommend munching on them while you watch fireworks on Tuesday.
July 4 has always been one of my favorite holidays.
I love that it’s for everyone in America, and that we can come together over loving our country — however we choose to love it. It’s a beautiful thing.
Happy July 4, y’all! // susannah
