Beer Cocktails

International Beer Day was celebrated on August 7th. For us, every day is Beer Day however. Here are 3 cocktails to help along.

Michelada

Originally a sort of beer-lemonade rumoured to have been invented by one Michel in Mexico, the Michelada eventually had other sauces and condiments added to it resulting in the spicier recipes of today. This is one version.

Ingredients

  • Lager beer                     1 pint
  • Lime juice                      10 ml
  • Worcestershire sauce  2 dashes
  • Soy sauce                       1 dash
  • Tabasco sauce               1 dash
  • Black pepper                 a pinch
  • Salt                                  a pinch
  • Ice                                    to fill glass
  • Lime peel                        to garnish

Preparation

Build the drink in the glass by first adding all the ingredients except the beer into the glass over lots of ice. Then add the beer, stir gently, garnish with the lime peel and serve.

Narangi

Beer and orange is a delicious combination. We have made it even tastier with the addition of Cointreau and fresh mint. You may never want to drink plain old beer again!

Ingredients

  • Lager beer   1 pint
  • Cointreau     30 ml
  • Orange slices        3
  • Mint leaves  5-6

Preparation

Gently muddle the mint leaves in the glass. Add the Cointreau and top with beer. Toss in the orange slices, serve and savour.

Black Velvet

black-velvet-290x195This classic cocktail was first created by the bartender at the Brook’s Club of London in 1861, to mourn the passing of Queen Victoria’s consort Prince Albert. It was supposed to symbolize the black armbands worn by mourners. You no longer need a reason to mourn to enjoy this drink.

Ingredients

  • Guinness stout      1 can
  • Champagne          1 quart

Preparation

Half-fill the glass with the Guinness. Now gently float the champagne over it by sliding it down against the inside of the glass. Serve immediately.
