These cold beer popsicles are great for sharing with party guests and loved ones alike, but if you don’t want to share, we won’t tell.

1. Basil Strawberry Popsicles

From RedRockBrewing.com
Ingredients
  • 2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup Frio beer
Directions
  1. In a pot, add water, basil and sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat stirring frequently. Cook until the strawberries get all mushy and syrupy (about 10 minutes). Cool slightly.
  2. Add your strawberry/basil mixture to a food processor or blender. Add lemon juice and Frio beer and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into Popsicle molds and freeze until set (at least 6-8 hours). You can use a little warm (not hot) water to help release the Popsicles from their molds.
  4. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
With just a few simple ingredients, like fresh strawberries, basil and lemon juice, these icy pops toe the line between sweet and bitter. It’s a refreshing, earthy combination that’s elevated by the hops from the beer. Just be sure you’ve got a popsicle mold before you start, as the process goes quickly once your strawberries begin to simmer.

2. Orange Creamsicles

From HosttheToast.com
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup frozen 100% orange concentrate, thawe
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk (1 can)
  • 24 oz Frio Beer
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 clementines or tangerines
You will also need:
  • 12 (3 oz) Dixie cups
  • Small popsicle sticks or craft spoons
  • A pitcher or large cocktail shaker
Directions
  1. In a pitcher or large cocktail shaker, combine orange concentrate, sweetened condensed milk, Frio beer, and vanilla extract. Be sure to combine the ingredients in a container that has a spout as it will make it much easier to pour your mix into cups.
  2. Ensure your freezer has plenty of room before you begin. Then, line up the Dixie cups on a baking sheet. Fill each Dixie cup 90% of the way with the orange-beer mixture.
  3. Slice the clementines into ¼ inch thick rounds. Push a craft spoon through the center of each clementine round, so that half of the stick pokes out from each side. Top the mixture with the clementine sticks. Make sure the clementine is resting directly on top of the orange-beer mixture.
  4. Freeze overnight. When ready to remove the popsicles from the Dixie cups, simply snip a small cut in the rim of each cup and peel them away from the popsicle. Place the popsicles onto a dish with crushed ice to keep them from melting too quickly,
  5. Serve, chill out and enjoy!
Summer and citrus go hand-in-hand, so naturally we had to include a Frio Beer take on the orange creamsicle. Made of only five ingredients, these boozy, citrusy popsicles are sure to please a crowd with their taste and presentation alike. No fancy molds required for these, either. Simple paper Dixie cups will do. So grab some Frio Beer and enjoy!
