Bastard Pop

These Beersicles are just plain Arrogant.  With the intense flavors of Arrogant Bastard ale, these beer infused popsicles can be made a few different ways, all depending on the version of Arrogant Bastard ale you want to use and can find in your market.  The regular Arrogant BastardBourbon Barrel-Aged Arrogant Bastard or Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale are always available, but you can use a Double Bastard Ale for even more kick, to one of their Small Batch Series to pre-measure |pour the beer so everyone gets some.

Instructions
  • In a small bowl, mix together the Arrogant Bastard (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.
