What you call the May long weekend likely depends on where in Canada you live.  You might call it "The Victoria Day Weekend" and require some treats to nibble on while watching the fireworks with the fam. You might call it "May 2/4" and need some additional booze to top off your growing mountain of booze that you plan to take with you on a camping trip somewhere.

In my case, my little brother will be attending his prom, so I will need some comfort food to indulge in at home when I realize how much time has passed since my prom and how old I'm getting. Regardless of where you are, the magical multi-celebration, multi-name May long weekend needs drinks and snacks. This Smirnoff popsicle recipe has got you covered for both.

#SpoonTip: Remember to take apart and wash your popsicle tray. Or, if you're really eager to start and still don't own popsicle molds, red solo cups work great too.
