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!?!

Strawberry and Beer Sorbet

This sorbet has a unique flavor to it since you can really taste the beer. Use your favorite beer!

In a sauce pan over medium high heat, add the strawberries and the sugar. With a potato masher, mash and stir the strawberries until well macerated and combined with the sugar. Allow the mixture to come to a boil, stirring and mashing until all the strawberries have broken down, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Place the strawberry mixture in the fridge until completely cool, at least 2 hours.

Remove strawberry mixture from fridge and stir in beer. Process in ice cream makes following manufacturers' instructions for 30-40 minutes until firm. Place in a freezer safe container and chill until ready to serve.

    I like to stuff my squash with something savory, like spicy sausage stuffing but your dish makes me re-think the whole concept!

    This looks awesome! I roasted an acorn squash the other night and chopped it up and threw it in a salad. You’re making me wish I had stuffed it instead though!

    I linked to this recipe from Examiner. 🙂

    hmm… is this something you think could be adapted for use with butternut squash? Obviously not really “stuffed”. I have a butternut that I’m looking for something to do with…
