Here's how to make them:

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!

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...
