Strawberry and Beer Sorbet

Want to make a pink treat for Valentine’s Day that isn’t just chocolatey or sugar-y and sweet with pink frosting? Then make this Strawberry and Beer Sorbet. Sure, it’s pink, but it tastes anything but girly.

Strawberry and Beer Sorbet

Since there are very few ingredients in this sorbet, you’re actually going to taste the beer, so choose something that you like. Preferably with a distinct flavor. I chose to use some Sam Adams Winter Lager that we had in the back of the fridge. It has a solid dark bock flavor with a hint of spiciness.

Hubby and I were both surprised at how much we liked this sorbet. The combination of the beer flavor with the fresh strawberries and the sensation of eating sorbet is like nothing I’ve had before. This sorbet is perfect for Valentine’s Day, the Superbowl, or any other day of the year.

I can’t wait to try this recipe with a variety of beer and fruit combinations. I love wheat beers and wheat beers tend to pair well with fruits. So be ready to see more variations of this to come. By the way, can you guys believe it is February already!?!

    Everytime I make anything out of this book I screw up a step. I’m starting to blame the book – maybe it has too many steps? I’ve had it for years, and I don’t mess up other recipes. But with this book. . . everytime I look at the recipe while whatever I’ve made is in the oven I go “oh no.”
    Let us know what else you cook and like out of the book. Love your blog.

    These are my favorite type of bars! And I agree, I could eat lemon curd all day!

    I also often don’t have the right size pan for a recipe, I guess I need to stock up 🙂

    I’ve been in a lemony mood as of late. This helps take some of the edge off.
