Do you have those girlfriends that are all ‘ew I don’t drink beer’ or those guy friends that are all “dude I am not drinking a girly cocktail”? Yea? We all do. You know what I do when those people show up at my house??
I trick em. I’m all “aw ok I’ll grab you a drink inside, gimme just a second, you sit back and relax.” And then BAM I show up with a brewtail (that’s just what I call ‘em, make up your own fun name if you want!)
I’m not talking about Shandys… we all know and drink shandys (light beer + lemonade), I’m talking true booze brews!
Hooliaritas* my personal favorite!
1 can frozen lemonade
1 can vodka (use the frozen lemonade can as measuring device… I’m practically MacGyver here people!)
Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Serve over ice. Enjoy!
Red Stripe + shot of Bacardi 151
Drop the shot of 151 into a glass of Red Stripe. Drink.
Flaming Dr Pepper
1 pint beer
3 parts amaretto
1 part Bacardi 151
Pour the amaretto into a shot glass, carefully layer the 151 on top. Light on fire. Quickly drop it into your glass of beer & chug. Tastes just like Dr. Pepper!
1 bottle Newcastle Brown Ale
1 shot espresso
1 shot Jack Daniel’s
1 small can of Red Bull
Pour espresso, Jack Daniel’s and Red Bull into a martini mixer, pour in beer, stir and pour cocktail over ice in a tall glass.
Mexican Iced Tea
1 1/2 oz tequila
3 oz Mexican beer
Pour tequila into a large frosty mug filled with ice cubes. Add beer, stir gently and garnish with a slice of lime.
1 beer of choice
3 oz tomato juice
1 dash Tabasco
1 dash salt
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
Basically just a Bloody Mary, with beer substituted for liquor. Pour all ingredients into a martini mixer, shake, then pour into glass over ice .
1 can beer
1 oz Kahlua
Pour coffee liqueur in a tall glass with ice (optional), add beer, stir lightly, enjoy!
1 can of beer
1 oz melon liqueur
Pour the melon liqueur into a glass of ice, add beer. Stir. Enjoy!
