My next beer cocktail is taken from the brilliant mind of Jamie Boudreau. The beer in this cocktail is actually a beer reduction turned into a liqueur with the addition of sugar and neutral grain spirits. You can find the recipe for Jamie’s beer liqueur on his site.
2 oz Rye Whiskey
¾ oz Campari
½ oz Beer liqueur
stir and strain into cocktail glass.
This is a great cocktail! The bitterness of the Campari and sweetness of the beer liqueur balance each other out well, while still letting the backbone of the rye whiskey come through. I would bump the rye up by half an ounce for my own tastes, but I’m still getting used to the strong flavors of the Campari. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Cheers!
