The Triumphant Return of the Hopsicle

Last summer, I posted on the travails of Rustico, a great little restaurant in Alexandria, Virginia trying to get the okay from state alcohol regulators to put frozen beer on a stick on its menu. Virginia had an old law on the books stating that alcohol must be either served in its original container or immediately after pouring. After a year of negotiation, the “hopsicle” returned to Rustico earlier this month. There’s also now a bill pending in the state legislature cementing the legal status of the frozen treat.

I had one last night. It was the cherry-flavored pop you see above, made from a Belgian kriek. Very, very tasty.

Also taking effect this month in Virginia: a bill legalizing sangria. That drink was also banned in the commonwealth, due to a post-Prohibition law banning any drink that mixes spirits, wine, or beer. The law technically outlawed martinis and boilermakers, too.
