Frozen Lambic Ice
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 25 mins, plus chilling and freezing time | Active Time: | Makes: About 4 cups

Lambic, a Belgian-style wheat beer often infused with raspberries or cherries, is delicious on its own, but freeze it with a bit of simple syrup and it’s like raspberry sorbet with a boozy kick.

What to buy: There are many brands of raspberry lambic out there, but we prefer Lindemans for its sweetness and strong raspberry flavor.

  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 cups cold raspberry lambic, such as Lindemans
  1. Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stir to mix, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sugar is completely dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool in the refrigerator until cold.
  2. Place lambic and chilled simple syrup in an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to an airtight container and chill in the freezer for at least 8 hours to set.
