Here’s The Tastiest Way To Cool Off This Summer

I’ll take three.

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

2. ESPECIALLY when those ice pops are topped with bubbly:

Sparkling Strawberry & Pineapple Ice Pops

Servings: 6
Recipe by Claire Nolan for BuzzFeed Tasty

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

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!

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

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

6. 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.

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

8. …or topped with plenty of bubbly!
