We like ice cold beer…  Why not freeze beer to make a frozen treat, that might be better that an “icy cold one’…

This Beersicle uses Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch beer as the base for all its complexity.  I love the flavors that this ‘ancient ale series’ brew has: honey, saffron, papaya, melon, biscuity, succulent.  By adding the simple syrup to this beer and placing it into a mold, the flavors melt across the palate in this beer popsicle.

Instructions
  • In a small bowl, mix together the Dogfish Head Midas Touch (cold) and the simple syrup (also cold) with a whisk. Pour this mixture into the popsicle molds, ice cube trays, silicone molds or small plastic cups. Place into the freeze, making sure the mold/container is level. Freeze for 6 - 12 hours in a 0°F/-17.7°C or below freezer, until completely solid. Since 40% alcohol cannot freeze until 173°F/78°C, the higher the alcohol content of the beer might change the texture of the finished popsicles.
  • If you don't want to make popsicles, but like the idea of frozen beer, try the same recipe, but place the mixture into a small casserole pan. Place in the freezer and after 1 hour, using a fork, scrape the mixture. Repeat this scraping every 30 minutes, until the mixture can be formed into an icy pile. This is similar to a Italian Ice called granita.
  • If traveling with these pops, remember that ice is only 32°F/0°C and will warm up the pops (being at 0°F/-17.7°C). It is best to use dry ice (-109.3°F/-78.5°C) to transport these pops. Dry Ice can be purchased at most wielding supply stores and some other grocery store locations.
Recipe Notes

Recipe Variations:

  • To enhance the papaya element, add a peeled, seeded and cubed papaya pieces to each mold, then top with the popsicle mix
