red, white and blue popsicle prosecco refresher

I have a fun and refreshing beverage for the upcoming 4th of July holiday.  Summertime is in full swing and it is HOT, making this the perfect drink to help with the festivities.

It is super easy but packs a big punch.  It is refreshing and fun and festive.

I love bubbly, whether it’s champagne, sparkling wine, cava or in this instance prosecco.  Prosecco is a sparkling wine from Italy and it leans towards the sweeter side, which pairs nicely with the popsicle.

The popsicle melts into the prosecco as you drink it.  You can eat the popsicle as you drink the bubbly or simply let the popsicle melt into the drink.  There are no rules except enjoy yourself.

If you do not drink alcoholic beverages or you want the kids to join in the fun you can always substitute the prosecco with sparkling water, lemon lime soda, cider, lemonade, etc.

There is no recipe per se, simply pour, dunk, enjoy!  

Do you spy something in the background?   Yup, we have some changes in the veggie garden which I will share real soon.  We are still finalizing it but we are super excited with the change.

In the meantime, enjoy our Independence day with this fun refreshing aperitif, drink, dessert, whatever you want it to be!

Cheers!  Salud!  Slante!  Tchin Tchin!

In other news, I finally migrated my blog from Typepad to WP. So although it might have seemed like I wasn’t working that much on the blog here I was actually working behind the scenes. You know- the not so fun stuff. Anyway, there are still some glitches and many broken links and I am working through it. Please bare with me, but I am just super excited all my content and images landed safely as opposed to the fiasco a few months ago. Technology – it’s a love hate.
