We’re in celebration mode over here! Mark’s niece just got a job offer at a cool little agency here in Charlotte. I made these pretty little drinks for Anna and we sat on the porch cheersing and talking about her exciting new life chapter. Her whole fam is coming into town for dinner tonight! The recipe for this little celebratory concoction is from Yossy’s new book Sweeter off the Vine. Yossy is known for her beautiful rustic baking, she makes magic happen in her charming little Brooklyn kitchen. Her book is all about fruit desserts, it’s organized by season and ingredient – which I just love! I didn’t have popsicle molds so I made these paletas in big ice cube molds and then just poured some prosecco over them. Cheers!
Oh and here are some more lovely recipes from her book from bloggers around the web!
