Yes, Beersicles Are a Thing and You *Need* Them for Memorial Day

It was only a matter of time before your beloved poptails had to take a backseat to something fresh and exciting. Beersicles (that’s beer ice pops) are the newest kind of spiked popsicle to grace your Pinterest feed and are about to become an essential to your Memorial Day party. Are you a shandy kind of girl? Try grapefruit and IPA combination. Corona and lime your jam? Go for it! The boozy possibilities are endless. Take some inspirations from the recipes below and then let your imagination run wild.
