Having a Heat Stroke - Pops to Cool You Off    

Dear Summer,
Though you last for only three months, test us with torrential downpours, and taunt us with your humidity, we love your cruel ways and will throw a soiree in your honor.

Eat to Beat the Heat!
Tinto De Verano Red Wine Popsicles for Adults made with deep richness of red wine (use whatever type you like best). The tartness of the lime and sugar sweet of the syrup make these popsicles so much tastier. If you are looking for a fun frozen summer treat, it doesn't get much better than this. We think Bernard Black would approve. Click Here for Recipe.

Blueberry Mojito Popsicles - Fresh blueberries and mint make for a tasty mojito.....even better when frozen into a chilly treat like these Blueberry Mojito Popsicles.  Even better...these popsicles are actually good for you! (Well, if you skip the rum...but who would do such a thing?) Click Here for recipe.

Limoncello Pops  -  Just imagine serving your guests refreshing Limoncello Pops after dinner on a sultry summer evening. This is a treat they'll be talking about for weeks to come!With a generous pour of vibrant Limoncello liqueur, an intense southern Italian aperitif (or digestivo), these lemon pops turn from pretty good to favoloso!

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
