Prosecco Popsicles

Striped Prosecco Popsicles by Fashionable Hostess - a collaboration with LaMarca and Gilt City

For my latest summer soiree, I had been searching for new and original ways to wow guests, so I partnered with Gilt City and La Marca Prosecco to create a totally cool {pun intended} take on a summer cocktail, a fruity Prosecco popsicle {to be consumed by guests over 21 of course!}. I wanted to keep things simple by sticking to 2 ingredients, La Marca Prosecco and fresh watermelon.

To create the popsicle I started by blending half a bottle of La Marca Prosecco and half of a fresh watermelon till liquified. Next I took my popsicle molds and filled a third with the blended mixture and allowed it to set for 30 minutes in the freezer. Then I filled a third with Prosecco, creating a striped look, and froze another 30 minutes. For the last layer I finished off the remaining blended mixture, stuck in wooden popsicle sticks for the handle, and froze for an hour before serving.

Because popsicles tend to melt so quickly in the summer heat, serving them in a cup seemed like the best way to allow guests eat at their leisure, or better yet, add more Prosecco. So I placed La Marca’s mini Prosecco bottles beside each glass for guests to enjoy! La Marca Prosecco is crisp and refreshing and the La Marca Minis are the perfect package when you’re playing around the pool! For guests that want to skip out on the popsicles, simply pop the cork, add a cute straw and it’s a stylish way to sip.
