Beer Cocktail Recipes
It gets cold here in Nova Scotia in the winter and we love our beer, so put a little heat to a cool drink to warm you up for that walk home from the bar.
This drink is remarkable! I used to order it at my favorite bar in Gelnhausen, Germany! If you don't like the taste of beer alone, you will love this drink!
Beer margaritas get a flavorful twist with strawberries! Change the flavors by changing the fruit. Mangoes or raspberries work nicely as well!
Who would believe that beer would be the perfect solution to eradicating fluorescent green margaritas? Well, it is! Best to use not-so-micro brews to avoid an overpowering beer flavor. Use the limeade can to measure the ingredients, and adjust with extra water if the mixture seems too sweet. Straining the pulp is always a good idea, unless, of course, you like pulp!
Called a "half and half" in Ireland, this pint is filled halfway with lager on the bottom with a float of Guinness® on top.
Fun to serve in the summer for special gatherings or cocktail parties. Given to me from Dottie, a long time friend and sorority sister. Garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of mint.
Depending on whom you talk to, making ice cream floats with beer is either a genius idea, or a horrible mistake. The key is to choose a beer that's on the toasty, malty, sweeter side, and stay away from beers that are too hoppy, dry, and bitter. Here I pair coffee ice cream with stout and vanilla, the safest option, with a Belgian raspberry sour (or any fruity beer). I'd make a small test glass first, to make sure it works for your palate.
Micheladas came from the words 'mi chela helada' which translates into 'my cold beer'. Micheladas originated in Mexico and now there are many different recipes. Dark beer, normally XX Cerveza is the norm in Mexico, but you can use any beer you like. This is a basic recipe with optional add-ons. With or without them, Micheladas are delicious. Garnish with a tamarind candy straw and additional lime wedges.
