Some Fools Made Boozy Peach Tea Popsicles And #SUMMER

During one of the hottest summers in America, the Foodbeast team tries to stay cool as best as possible. So, we’ve prepared a popular frozen treat strictly for the 21 and over folks.

To get started, let’s talk about the three main ingredients you’ll need: sweet peach tea, your choice of a good bourbon, and of course, peaches (or white nectarines, whichever floats your boat). Next, soak some sliced peaches in the bourbon for a few hours so they can absorb all the alcoholic goodness. Add them to your pop maker. Then, fill the mold with sweet peach tea, top it with the holder, and set them in the freezer.

After a few more hours, the Sweet Peach Tea Bourbon Popsicles will be ready to cool your mouths down and hopefully get you a little tipsy.

Restaurant Finds A Brilliant Way To Serve S’MORES

Snow-S'mores-01

Every time this dude Nick, AKA the Grubfiend, hits me up, I know we’re gonna roll on some crazy food adventure. Take this trip to California-based dessert spot Snowopolis, for example. These guys actually made table side S’MORES.

We found this spot in Montebello, Calif., not too far from the freeway. Sure, Snowopolis is known for their giant portions of Hawaiian shaved ice. The thing that caught our eye, however, was definitely the s’mores.

The entire menu is customizable letting you choose what kind of graham cracker, marshmallow, chocolate and other sweet toppings you could want. There are seriously dozens of different items to choose from.

Snowopolis-Smore-Menu

Scott Leotti, owner of Snowopolis, spoke about how he came up with the idea to do table side s’mores.

I wanted a dessert that was unique and would go well in a lounge-type atmosphere, especially at night. S’mores can be roasted all year which makes it the perfect treat. I wanted to come up with ways so the customer can invent it & we just put it together. So I did just that.

We grabbed a few choice toppings and flavors and decided to have some fun with it. We were served a tray of s’more ingredients. A heat cell to roast the marshmallows sat at the center of the tray.

Snow-S'mores-02Definitely be careful if you have kids though. Y’know, because of the open flames.

The result is this beautiful stack of s’mores.

Snow-S'mores-03

Totally worth getting chocolate and marshmallow into all the crevices of my phone and camera.

Sure, you could go to a fancy sit-down restaurant for a pasta fix, or, even better, attempt to make your own, but Quiznos would like to suggest a welcome middle ground.
