Drink of Stampede Week 2: Iceberg

Baby, it’s hot outside, and the final weekend of the Calgary Stampede calls for something as fun and refreshing as it is alcoholic: an Iceberg. My version, though, is somewhat more civilized. Instead of dumping lemon slush into a cold beer, I made lemonade popsicles to dip in. The result: two treats.

  1. A lemony freezie with beer notes.
  2. A gold lager with sweet chunks of frozen lemonade.

It’s a win-win.

The Iceberg: a refreshing treat that solves the age-old question, “What should I order, a beer or a popsicle?”


  • Cold beer (I used Phillip’s Phoenix Gold Lager)
  • Lemon or lime slush (I made lemonade popsicles with blueberries added for flavour and colour)

Pour beer into a glass, dunk popsicle in, serve. Eat some of the beer-dipped popsicle, or let it melt into your beer adding extra chill and a nice lemony flavour. Yeehaw!
