Roasted Strawberry Black Bellini Popsicles are a bright addition to your warm summer evenings. Strawberries are roasted in sugar and balsamic vinegar (to bring out the flavor of the berries) before mixing with Fresca Frizzante Black Bellini to form these frozen treats. Since the Fresca Frizzante is a major component of the base of these popsicles, the natural bold flavors of peach and blood orange shine through and create a aromatic flavor you already love and enjoy. Because of the alcoholic nature of these popsicles, they are not suitable for minors.
