Drinkers have tales of phenomenal drinks that have never been re-created. Drinks that will make your hangover go away. Drinks that will give you the strength of 10 men (or at least the courage of a different, bigger man).
But these are bar stories, told to amuse or with a bit of wistfulness. I would have put the beer popsicle in this category. The Hopsicle made a stir in 2007, but the buzz was gone after that summer. However, a new suds-inspired creation -- the Hopsicle Experience -- is making the rounds. And this time, there's instructions.
It's a method that seems easy enough to duplicate. According to Urban Daddy, it's a four-step process.
1. Take a can of Tecate. Pop the top.
2. Add simple syrup and lime to the beer. Place a popsicle stick in the top.
3. Freeze for four days.
4. Cut the can in half with a serrated blade. Douse in tequila (optional).
It's then apparently eaten/drank at the Diablo Royale Este -- a Manhattan (New York) bar that also transforms margarita mixers into beer slushie machines. Welcome to the new world of frozen cocktails where urban legends are apparently coming true.
