I don’t care that everyone seems to be heralding in the “fall” now that Labor Day is over. I think there is still time to hold on to the summer season in certain ways! I still need to cool down in the sweltering Florida heat anyway. And what better way to do so than with some popsicles in prosecco?
Yep. You heard me right. The combination of two very fabulous items, that’s what this is. And I’ve actually been thinking about creating this little concoction for a few months now. Earlier in the summer (at the end of June, to be exact), I traveled to Atlanta for a conference. At check-in, we received our badges and information, but there was also a little popsicle stand parked nearby, giving away fresh peach popsicles to attendees. These pops were fantastic on their own, but my fellow travel companions and I found ourselves talking about how great it would be if we had some sparkling wine to combine with it.
So it may have taken me a few months, but I finally broke down and made it happen in my own kitchen. I probably should have made my own fresh peach popsicles, but when I saw some whole fruit peach popsicles in the freezer aisle I kind of got lazy. Oops. Don’t judge.
This flavor combo definitely reminds me of a bellini – the peach pop mixed with the fizzy prosecco is a great texture and flavor combo. It’s refreshing; a great afternoon snack on a weekend, if I do say so myself! Plus, since it is such a cinch to put together there really isn’t any excuse to not make one for yourself! Right?
Have you ever put a popsicle in prosecco? What flavor combo did you try?
