As you know by now, it's gonna be a hot summer.

And to cool down, you've pretty much got two options: Frozen treats or cocktails.

But you know what's even better than either of those things separately?

NBC

Both of those things ~together~.

Enter: BOOZY POPS.

They're delicious, easy to make, and perfect for say, that big Fourth of July backyard BBQ.

*Or just solo Sunday nights with Netflix. No judgement.

First up? Prosecco pops with fresh strawberries:

To make them, you will need:

• A bottle of Prosecco or cheap bubbly

• Fruit — we used strawberries, but any berries work.

• Ice pop molds — we used these, but you could also DIY a version with Dixie cups.

Note that on their own, these guys are on the tart side:

But if that's not your thing, you can sweeten them by: • Adding a splash of orange juice or Sprite • Macerating the berries first in sugar or simple syrup

Next? Margarita pops with lime:

To make them, you will need:

• Tequila

• Lime juice & lime slices

• Condensed milk

• Water

• Ice pop molds or Dixie cups and popsicle sticks

The condensed milk adds a creamy sweetness, a la Key Lime pie:
