BCBS with Pumking. The bourbon and spice of the pumking really meshed well....especially for this time of year!
I also have downed a few chambord n stouts.
My friend homebrewed a breakfast stout. Then I added a bit of Woodford. It was a hit.
Two Hearted Buffalo. I've been pouring these for years at our bar. One shot of Buffalo Trace bourbon, filled with 14 ounces of Bell's Two Hearted on tap. Absolutely amazing.
You are a trailblazer ....onward ..MUSH!! (to the team of Huskies)
Oberon with absolute oranj, good in the summer, for me its an improvement on oberon. I used to work at a bar, and a bartender friend of mine just started throwing it in there, so I didnt come up with it but do enjoy it.
How did u know it was me?
I can only find the standard version I did enjoy this mix though
That's one expensive drink.....
I've got bourbon.....I've got beer......time to put on the lab coat....
I don't experiment with adding spirits to beer because for the most part I don't like spirits, but my sweetheart has begun adding a shot of blueberry vodka to a pint of Cisco Grey Lady witbier at every opportunity.
This bar is right down the street from me and, while they no longer offer these cocktails, they're a must-visit if you're ever in the Miami area.
i cringe at beer cocktails. I think its an abomination especially with craft beer.
I personally have never mixed them myself. Though, just like with rimming a glass, if it was a beer I've already had a few times, I'd give it a try.
Also at a party, I have had a punch made with Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout.
Then, there was the time when my friend mixed blueberry whiskey with Stone IPA. I knew it was going to taste awful...just like some nasty cough medicine.
Personally i think beer cocktails are best for beer that would otherwise taste not so great alone or that was lacking in flavor altogether. However stout mixes pleasantly with a lot of things. It is good with ice cream and Kahlua and I'm told it mixes well with raspberry lambic. I personally always took corona and mixed it with lime, pineapple juice and salt ( considering its not acceptable by itself). A local bar also commonly has a menu, where they mix two beers together. It is actually quite tasty sometimes!
Just the usual combos:
Old and bitter = a ma in law
Old and mild = a grandmother
Old and stout = a grandad
Light and bitter = a lion bitter or half and half
Stout and bitter = Maccy tan, black n tan or special
Lager and cider = a snakebite
Barleywine and Guinness = Blacksmith
Barleywine and rum = Dragons blood
Well first I ask my bartender to pour half a shot of Jameson's Irish Whiskey and have him top it off with some Bailey's Irish Cream. Next, I order a pint of Guiness...
