Helles Yes You Can Make Craft Beer CocktailsAug 28, 2014 Comments (0)
Summer is not over yet! Which means there's still time to enjoy your favorite seasonal brews before they hibernate until next year.
Now, this may surprise you, but sometimes we crave a drink other than a craft beer. As much as we LOVE our brews, we also enjoy finely crafted wine and cocktails, especially when they use fresh, seasonal ingredients. So we used Beer Cocktails: 50 Superbly Crafted Cocktails that Liven Up Your Lagers and Ales to track down some recipes that combine the best of both worlds!
Below are our favorite two recipes that showcase all that we know and love about Lux, in seasonal cocktail form. Helles Yes!
- 12 ounces fresh blackberries
- Ice Cubes
- 4 ounces freshly squeezed mandarin orange juice
- 3 ounces St-Germain elderflower liqueur
- 2 ounces Charmbord
- 12 ounces Lux
Muddle the blackberries in a shaker. Fill the shaker halfway full with ice cubes and add the juice, Charmbord and St-Germain. Shake vigorously and strain into four glasses. Last but not least, add Lux!
