Summer Popsicle Recipes

Hi lovelies, I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
As you know from my instagram, today is National Prosecco Day. {And I am pretttyyy excited about it!}

Last week I went to a really unique rooftop bar in NYC called Loopy Doopy which is on top of the Conrad Hotel and their menu of prosecco and rose “poptails” is exactly what inspired me to write this blog post so you can make your own! I’ve seen a couple of yummy popsicle recipes on Pinterest lately that I’ve been DYING to try because all I’ve craving this Summer is ice cream, popsicles and refreshing cocktails.
