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!?!

    AND just perfect for Canada Day!! 🙂 I love the colours, and they are cut PERFECTLY… I’m terrible at cutting bars.
    I wish I’d seen this a few days ago when I had fresh picked strawberries in my house! But a strawberry rhubarb pie will have to suffice 😉

    These look amazing! When you were talking about not being able to find cheesecake ice cream I immediately thought of Cold Stone. Good thing someone turned you on to that idea. It would have been a shame to think these bars could have not come to fruition 🙂

    these sound incredible! Love the sound of the blondie-like sandwich layers. I am so sorry you had to make something you couldn’t enjoy though!
