Sam Adams Summer “Ale-Fresca” Popsicle

Sam Adams Summer Ale
Sam Adams Summer Ale

• 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.
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 tooth picks into the center of each one. The aluminum foil will prevent the stick from falling sideways. Allow to freeze overnight and enjoy!!
