    I'll take three.

    As we move into summer, homemade ice pops are always a great idea.

    ESPECIALLY when those ice pops are topped with bubbly:

    Sparkling Strawberry & Pineapple Ice Pops

    Servings: 6

    Recipe by Claire Nolan for BuzzFeed Tasty

    INGREDIENTS

    1/2 cup strawberries

    1/2 cup diced pineapple

    1/2 cup ginger ale

    1 lime, cut into wedges

    6 ice-pop sticks

    1 bottle champagne or sparkling wine

    PREPARATION

    In a large bowl, combine strawberries and diced pineapple, then mash fruit with a muddler, fork, or spoon. Add the ginger ale and sir.

    Using plastic shot glasses, add one lime wedge into the bottom and fill each glass with the fruit mixture. Freeze for 8 hours or until completely solid.

    Add one ice pop to your favorite kind of sparkling wine or champagne, or enjoy on its own. Enjoy!

    Mash strawberry and pineapple chunks in a bowl, and pour in a splash of ginger ale:

    Then line up your containers — or ice pop molds, or paper or plastic cups — and toss a lime wedge in each one:

    Scoop the fruit mixture into each, top with a stick, and freeze until solid.

    It should take about 8 hours. Also: Be careful not to overfill each one, as the fruit mixture may expand while it freezes.

    Once frozen, twist and pop — and either enjoy on its own...

    ...or topped with plenty of bubbly!
