Mixer & Mingle Fridays: Brewtails

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 Corona
1 can frozen lemonade
1 sprite
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!

Coffee Bomb
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 .

Caribbean Night
1 can beer
1 oz Kahlua
Pour coffee liqueur in a tall glass with ice (optional), add beer, stir lightly, enjoy!

South Wind
1 can of beer
1 oz melon liqueur
Pour the melon liqueur into a glass of ice, add beer. Stir. Enjoy! 

What's your take on brewtails? Do you make any booze brews of your own?   Let's hear em!

You had me at Flaming Dr. Pepper <3

Shandy's?! Never heard of this. Must be some weird Indy thing.

I am pretty sure this post WAS just for me. Flaming Dr. Pepper(I have a serious relationship with Dr. P), Hooliartia(Corona is my #1 beer), MEXICAN Iced Tea (rumors are true...I am mexican), Red Bull(slightly addicted), SouthWind (camp I use to go to).

Yeah I need a drank.

Fabulous job by the way. And no, I didn't pee my pants. Sorry to disappoint you.

Hooliaritas are my personal fav..but we don't usually add Sprite but I will have to try that! I've also seen people do the same thing but use tequila and frozen lime concentrate or limeade. I'm thinking the Mexican Iced Tea is a must try!

Erica said...

RUDE to do this. My mouth is watering now! Can you bring me a Hooliarita in the delivery room?

Erica said...

Also... didn't we drink flaming Dr. Pepper's at your house on a Sunday afternoon for your birthday? I want to say it was birthday 21 or 22... but I'm pretty sure Bob took it with us. And finished first.
