Beer Cocktails

Beer cocktails, also known as beertails, are a creative and refreshing twist on traditional beer-based beverages. These innovative concoctions combine the flavours of beer with various spirits, mixers, and garnishes to create a unique and delightful drinking experience. With their versatility and wide range of flavour profiles, beer cocktails offer something for everyone, whether you’re a beer enthusiast or a cocktail lover.


Beer Mojito

One of the great things about beer cocktails is their ability to balance the flavors of beer with other ingredients, creating a harmonious and complex taste. From classic combinations like the Michelada, which combines beer with tomato juice, lime, and spices, to more adventurous creations like the Beer Mojito, which adds a refreshing twist to the traditional cocktail with the addition of beer, these drinks offer a wide range of flavours and aromas. Whether you prefer a light and fruity beer cocktail or a bold and bitter one, there is a beer cocktail out there to suit your taste. I highly reccomend you try a very tasty Beer Margarita. I made this one for Grand Final Day as a low alcohol cocktail with Lyres Blue Agave so we could drink and drive  (see socials post)


Get Creative

Beer cocktails also provide an opportunity to experiment and get creative with flavours. Bartenders and home mixologists alike can play with different beer styles, spirits, and mixers to create their own unique concoctions. The carbonation and effervescence of beer add a lively and refreshing element to the cocktails, making them perfect for summer gatherings, brunches, or simply enjoying on a warm day. With their versatility and endless possibilities, beer cocktails are a fun and exciting way to explore new flavor combinations and elevate your drinking experience. Get Creative!

Note: I did predict the rise of beer cocktails 3 years ago in an earlier story and am happy to say I was proved right!
