At this time of year, everyone's looking forward to the summer, but since we can't have the warmth just yet all we have left are dreams. And there's no better to dream about summer than to fantasize about all the amazing cool treats we've been missing out on for the last 6 months. Plus, who says you have to wait until summer, just buy a bag of sand from Rona, pour it onto the floor of your living room, turn the heat up in your apartment and take your shirt off. Denial can be a wonderful thing.

Now that you have you mini summer set-up, you need a summer treat to complete the illusion. That's when these Lemonade Fruit Popsicles from utry.it come in handy, proving once again that the simplest recipes can be the tastiest. In fact they're so tasty, we should call them TasteSicles. All you need to get your hands on some of these babies is lemonade, fruit and Popsicle molds (they come in handy so go buy some already). And if you don't have Popsicle molds, just use Dixie cups.

Of course you're not crazy and you're an adult which means this treat needs a boozy twist. Spike the lemonade with whatever you want: vodka, rum or even burbon. you can scrap the booze and make a mix of wine and fruit juice. You can swap the lemonade with pretty much any other kind of juice, nectar or drink mix (Burbon and iced-tea fruit pops? Yes please!)

Again, no need for complicated recipes or instructions, just a little common sense and some imagination. Cut up your fruit, stick them in the mold and cover with your own juice/booze blend. Let 'em freeze for a couple of hours and your summer fantasy is complete.

2021 Was Montreal's Hottest Year On Record

Here's what's in store for the first few months of 2022.

It's official — 2021 was the hottest year on record for Montreal, according to Environment Canada. It beat out the previous hottest years, 1998 and 2012, by a mean few hundredths of a degree.

This rise in temperature in Montreal is attributed to new weather patterns, causing scorching temperatures in June, August, September and October. "August and October were record-breaking months," said Environment Canada spokesperson Simon Legault.

Of all the things you'd expect to find as you walk along Boulevard Saint-Laurent, a 7-foot-tall, gin-inspired hedge maze probably isn't one of them. But from August 6 to 8, Bombay Sapphire is building a labyrinth full of surprises in the Old Port — and, yes, that does include free gin samples for Quebecers aged 18 and up.

A Bombay spokesperson described the maze as a "large-scale [...] whimsical oasis" with walls that "cloak the discoverable experiences within."
