From an email:

“While the status of Washington’s beloved summer traditions seems uncertain, Stable is resurrecting a warm weather fan favorite, usually debuted on Memorial Day weekend, a little early. On Saturday, April 11th, Stable will bring back their schnaps-spiked popsicles lovingly known as Schnapsicles for brunch carry out and delivery. Packaged as the flavor ice of your wildest Swiss dreams, guests can enjoy a Schnapsicle for a brunch at home or stock their freezer with the much-needed fun and whimsy these boozy treats deliver (move over boring batched meals).
