Ingredients

  • 2 bottles wheat beer
  • 2-3 tablespoons grenadine or maraschino cherry juice
  • 2-3 tablespoons cherry liqueur
  • Lemonade
  • Cherries
  • Lime wedges
  • Chef notes

    Boozy slushies made with beer and a sweet cherry twist will make any summer day feel refreshingly complete.

    Preparation

    1.

    Pour the beer into a shallow dish. Add the grenadine and cherry liqueur to taste.

    2.

    Pop the mixture in the freezer. Come back every 30 minutes for about 2-2½ hours and scrape the frozen crystals with a fork to create a slushy texture.

    3.

    Spoon the slushy mixture into two glasses. Top it off with a little more cherry liqueur and lemonade to taste. If it tastes bitter, sweeten with more lemonade.

    4.

    Garnish with cherries and lime wedges and serve immediately.
