Last week was a big one for us Chicagoans – tickets for Lollapalooza 2017 went on sale AND the lineup was announced! I didn’t go for a 4-day pass, but after looking at the lists again, I already want more than the Saturday ticket I snagged. So many good artists are coming! (Yes, I already made a Lollapalooza playlist… keep scrolling!)
But beyond the killer music, this lineup announcement is such a sign that summer is coming to Chicago. If you’re not familiar with Lolla, it’s a 4-day music festival held in Grant Park every August. There are multiple stages, tons of artists, (hopefully) lots of sunshine, and our gorgeous skyline as the backdrop for every performance. It’s one of my favorite weekends every year – you can read about my experience last summer in this post ?
So… since we got this lovely sign of summer, it seemed appropriate to celebrate with a refreshing and fun cocktail featuring my favorite bubbly Segura Viudas Rosé Cava, grapefruit juice and, yes, a POPSICLE!
All you have to do is mix equal parts Segura Viudas Rosé Cava and grapefruit juice into a wine glass. Then it’s time for a little extra sweetness!! I used Strawberry and Mango popsicles, and the flavors paired perfectly with the rest of the drink. You can eat the popsicle as you drink, or if you wait long enough, the popsicle will start to melt in your drink… guys, it’s delicious.
And while you’re enjoying your refreshing beverages, why not get excited for August with a Lollapalooza Playlist?! It was SO fun to put this together that I’ve been listening to it nonstop all week. I’ll admit – I only added songs by the artists I already know. Woops! If I left anyone awesome out, PLEASE leave a comment and let me know! This can definitely be a work in progress. We’ve got time ?
