When I first heard about making a beer slush, I was not sure if I would like it but with all the 95+ weather we have been having in the Mitten, it became a must try. So I did! I have to admit this idea might be more of a “chick” thing than a guy thing. My husband tried it but I could tell it was not something he would ask me to make.
For the first one I made I used my raspberry wheat but also made a second one with a Belgian white beer. I honestly think a smooth stout would be good too. So if you are in a heat wave like we have been here in the mitten, try making a beer slush to cool off. Enjoy!!!! For comments/questions contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
You will basically be makeing the beer into a granita. Pour 1 beer (lager, flavored stout or flavored wheat – not sure about what IPA would be like but feel free to try it and tell us :)) into a shallow glass baking dish. Place the dish in the freezer, scraping it every 30 minutes or so with a fork for about 2 hours. Spoon the granita into a mug or pilsner glass. Top with a bit of lemonade or limeade concentrate. Take out spoon and devour slowly!
