Ooooooooooooooooh man. Only 1 day left till our move! I am STOKED! And a tad bit sad to leave. Aaaaaand totally completely stressed. Ugh. Moving. A total beeeotch amiright? The food sitch has been pretty dire with everything in boxes and whatnot. I STILL have my popsicle mold out though! And beer and juice in my fridge. So, pretty big fatty duh making these grapefruit shandy beersicles. A complete whim of an idea and they have become my favorite popsicles I’ve made all summer. Mmmmm……. beersicles.
So, as I said, the move is tomorrow. And I still have 8 of these babies left in the freezer. They melt SO fast, cause, you know, alcohol. So, we won’t be taking them with us. I wish I could pass them out to everyone! But alas, we may just have to eat them all tonight! A boozy popsicle party! A beersicle party!
Could be worse.
- 16 oz grapefruit juice
- 12 oz IPA (I used Ninkasi Total Domination)
- ¼ cup sugar
- Blend juice and beer together in a large pitcher. Stir in sugar until dissolved.
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 2 hours.
- Insert sticks, and freeze 6 hours or overnight.
- Remove from molds and store in plastic baggies for up to 2 weeks.
I am now dreaming of all the juicy beersicles I am going to make in our new place! Maybe some fresh blackberry juice? Or maybe fresh tomato juice? Too weird? I think it sounds delicious! Buuuuuut I may be going a bit crazy from, you know, weddings, packing, moving, AND working. Ugh.
I’m tired guys. Can’t wait for our beersicle party!
