My supper club met last night for the first time in a while. We've been a bit off schedule since a few babies joined us this year.
We have been meeting for about six years, so we have a pretty good routine. The hostess makes the main dish and supplies the wine. The rest of us fill in with sides and dessert depending on who is hosting.
1 750 ml bottle chilled Belgian raspberry beer (framboise lambic)
3 tablespoons sugar, divided
Premium vanilla ice cream
Mix 1 cup beer and 1 tablespoon sugar in glass pie dish; stir to dissolve. Freeze until set, at least 4 hours or overnight.
Boil 1 cup beer with 2 tablespoons sugar in heavy small saucepan until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 10 minutes. Chill syrup until cold. Chill remaining beer.
Using fork, scrape granita into flakes. Spoon ice cream into 4 small glasses; drizzle syrup over. Top with granita; pour more beer down the inside of each glass.
