Recipe: Beer-infused popsicles
Sam Adams Beers of Summer Variety Pack (including favored Blueberry Hill Lager) is a summertime must. Taking it up a notch, the brand teamed up with Rebecca and Daniel Dengrove of Brewla Bars (popsicles made with brewed ingredients) to create craft beer-infused popsicle recipes. Here’s one to serve at your next outdoor party.
Juice from 3 small to medium sized lemons (make sure they smell aromatic), about 1/3 cup
Juice from 1 pink grapefruit, about ¼ cup
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Bottle Summer Ale
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp grapefruit zest
Juice the lemons and grapefruit. Combine the juice with sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Add the Sam Adams Summer Ale slowly to prevent too much foam from forming. Add the zests. Taste the mix and adjust the sweetness by adding 1 – 2 tbsp more sugar if needed.
If you don’t have popsicle molds, use ice cube trays or 2 oz paper cups as ice pop molds. Pour the mixture into your molds. Cover with aluminum foil and poke toothpicks into the center of each one. The aluminum foil will prevent the stick from falling sideways. Allow to freeze overnight and enjoy!
