Lavender Lemonade Champagne Popsicles

What is better on a warm summer night than popsicles? A throwback to childhood, sticky sweet goodness, all things good and yummy. But what about an adult version? Can they be made? Is it possible

Oh yes, yes they can. And these ones were particularly delicious. Fresh lavender, lemonade, champagne, frozen blueberries. All frozen and delicious. It's incredibly simple but you do need to think ahead of time. The ahead of time is because these can take up to 12 hours to freeze.

So enjoy these one of these weekends in August. Or on a weekday. Whenever popsicles strike your fancy.

1/2 bottle champagne
2 cups lemonade
3 T fresh lavendar
1 C frozen blueberries

You'll need some popsicle forms. I got these for $0.89 at Target. Woot!

For the champagne, it doesn't have to be fancy. I used the fanciest - Cristalino - for mine.

You can find fresh lavender at spice shops. This came from Union Market in DC.

Combine the champagne, lemonade, and lavender in a pitcher.

Carefully pour the mixture into the popsicle containers. And then carefully sprinkle a few of the frozen blueberries into the containers.

Pop into the freezer for at least 8 hours, but we left ours overnight.

And then enjoy!!
