Two cocktails. One week. Are you excited, because I know I am. I’m super excited to share this super simple, beat-the-heat cocktail with you. It combines my love of frozen fruit bars and all things frosty cold in the summer with my other favorite love: wine!

It’s been blistering hot this summer. Whoa, way to state the obvious, right?

Seriously, I’m sweating in places I didn’t know existed, my hair situation is no bueno, and, for the sake up upholding social standards and to avoid gawking, I’ve been forced to wear a bra at all times outside of the house, which is why I only venture outside when it’s absolutely necessary. Even then, I throw on a cami with a built-in bra and call it a day. Don’t judge.

Heat stroke prevention is an absolute must this season, which is why I keep a stock of frozen treats in the freezer at all times. I’ve become quite smitten with Fruttare fruit bars as of late. Each bar is loaded with chunks of real fruit that has been sourced from farms that care about the future of our lovely planet. The strawberries, coconuts, bananas, and limes are currently being sourced from sustainable farms. Their goal is to sustainably farm every piece of fruit that goes into their bars. Isn’t that a breath of fresh air?

What better way to have fun and jazz up your glass of bubbly Prosecco than adding a burst of real fruit flavor in the form of a frozen treat? Not only does your glass of bubbly take on the flavor of your favorite fruit bar, but it also keeps your glass of sparkling wine chilled on a hot day.

Since I’m all about cherries this summer, I decided to reach for the Black Cherry Fruttare bars. I was pleasantly surprised after my first bite. The bar was absolutely delicious, and you can see the chunks of real cherries swirled throughout each bar. The cherry flavor is like cherry on steroids–it’s sweet, tart, and tastes just like the pop-able fruit I love so much this time of year.

So, pack your beach towel, flip flops, and shades and enjoy this cocktail poolside.
