Fans of bourbon and beer likely drink them side-by-side as a Boilermaker, taking a shot of the whiskey before sipping the beer more slowly.
But this bold cocktail from Four Roses combines bourbon with a tangy blood orange beer in one tall glass, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Simply fill a glass with the beer, shake the rest of the ingredients together and enjoy. While this cocktail is extra refreshing in warm weather, we love to drink it anytime of year.
- 2 oz. Four Roses Bourbon
- 6 oz. Blood Orange Beer
- .75 oz. Fresh-Squeezed Lemon Juice
- .5 oz. Demerara Syrup (or Simple Syrup)
- Orange Twist (to Garnish)
Preparation: Pour the beer into a chilled Collins glass. In a cocktail shaker, combine the bourbon, lemon juice and demerara syrup with ice, and shake vigorously. Strain the bourbon mixture into the beer and garnish with an orange twist.
