Ingredients

  • Juice from 3 small to medium-sized lemons (make sure they smell aromatic), about 1/3 cup
  • 2  Tablespoons  sugar
  • bottle of Samuel Adams Summer Ale
  • 1  Teaspoon  lemon zest
  • 1  Teaspoon  grapefruit zest
  • Juice from 1 pink grapefruit, about 1/4 cup

Directions

Juice the lemons and grapefruit. Combine the juice with sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Add the Samuel Adams Summer Ale to prevent too much foam from forming. Add the zests. Taste the mix and adjust the sweetness by adding 1 to 2 tablespoons more sugar if needed. 

Use ice cube trays or 2-ounce paper cups as ice pop molds. Pour the mixture into your molsd. Cover with aluminim 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.

Summer Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Summer Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
