It's almost Fourth of July! BBQ's... swimming... fireworks... and most importantly, a long weekend. Here at LMP, we have a lot of big plans for the long weekend, and we will definitely be eating some delicious food and sippin' on some refreshing cocktails throughout the whole 3 days.

I've been noticing a trend in people combining cocktails and frozen treats, so I decided to make a festive version for this upcoming Holiday Weekend.  This beautiful concoction combines two summer faves - white sangria and popsicles.

Here's what you'll need:

-1 bottle white wine -1 cup raspberries -1 cup blueberries -1 bottle of prosecco -firecracker popsicles

Here's what to do:

1) Pour bottle of white wine, cup of raspberries and cup of strawberries into a pitcher. 2) Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

5) Place one firecracker popsicle in each wine glass to garnish.  The popsicle will also act as an ice cube alternative!

It's that easy! You'll notice when you place a popsicle in each glass, your sangria will fizz, just like a firecracker. Also, as the popsicle melts, your sangria will turn different shades of red, white and blue... how much more patriotic could a cocktail get?!
