Rosé Popsicles

Nothing says summer more than drinking copious amounts of rosé. I don’t know about your neck of the woods but Los Angeles was definitely feeling the heat this week. So in an attempt to keep cool I decided to try and combine two of summer’s favorite things rosé and popsicles!


After trying a few different versions of freezing alcohol, to varying degrees of success, I came up with my preferred method!

1.) Fill up 1/4 of your popsicle mold with your favorite fresh squeezed fruit juice. I prefer pineapple or grapefruit juice but go with what you like or read the tasting label on your bottle of wine and play off of that.
2.) Fill the rest of the popsicle mold with your favorite rosé.
3.) Put the molds in the freezer and wait 12-24 hours for the popsicles to freeze.

These are great to have on hand heading into the weekend. How much better would Friday at 5 feel when you know that you have these waiting in the freezer.


Enjoy, I know I will!



One of my absolute favorite things to do in Los Angeles is going to a movie screening at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Each summer Cinespia selects several movies and screens them against the wall of a mausoleum.

Everyone brings blankets, pillows, food, and lots of booze. It’s a must do in LA but you should come prepared. My first screening of 2016 was GOODFELLAS with my friend Allegra.

In honor of the movie our spread was all Italian (except for dessert). I made prosciutto, basil, mozzarella skewers with balsamic vinaigrette to start off our night!


We followed that up with Bay Cities sandwiches. Now as a girl who went to school across the street from Arthur Ave, I am a snob about Italian food. Bay Cities has the best Italian sandwiches in Los Angeles, but this tangent is for another post in the near future.

For dessert I bought individual “cutie pies” from Simple Things. The little individual boxes the pies come in makes for easy transport into the cemetery.


All in all it was a wonderful night and I can’t wait for my next trip to Hollywood Forever Cemetery!


Here are some things that are an absolute musts for a great night at Cinespia and a few things I have my eye on for my next screening…
