Beer Cocktails, 30 May 2012

Tonight I put together a couple of beer cocktails from recipes I’ve obtained.

The first of these was a version of Black-White & Tiki, which I got hold of at a LivingSocial 918 F Street mixology course put on by Gina Chersevani (formerly of PS 7’s and now with Hank’s Oyster Bar, DC).

The ingredients for this version of the Black-White & Tiki…

1 oz Chairman’s Reserve Rum

1 oz coconut milk

1 oz sugarcane syrup

3-4 oz Maui CoCoNut Porter

1 pinch of cinnamon

Combine the rum, coconut milk, and sugarcane syrup, shake with ice until frothy.  Pour over crushed ice into a collins glass and top with the CoCoNut Porter.  Garnish with a pinch of cinnamon and serve with a straw.

I used Sugar in the Raw syrup and Pyrat rum for this rendition.  The cocktail comes out nice and chocolatey thanks to the beer…it’s like a beery mudslide, and quite tasty.

Tasty and chocolatey (sans chocolate?)

Next up was a drink I had at Mie & Yu in Georgetown called the “Gaarden of Babylon”.  The name comes from the use of Hoegaarden in the recipe.

My ingredients for the Gaarden of Babylon…

St. Germain elderflower liqueur

Blackstrap syrup



I wasn’t sure of the measurements for each of the ingredients, so I went with 1 oz St. Germain, 3/4 oz molasses (replacing blackstrap syrup), and juice from 1/2 a lemon.  Shook those ingredients vigorously with ice – especially important with molasses as it takes a bit for it to mix in.  Top off with the Hoegaarden.  Comes out as a nice, tangy beer cocktail.

If anyone is tracking on a beer cocktail that utilizes Duchesse de Bourgogne, let me know.

  1. I’m waiting for a warm day to try this:

    I did add a dram of Matusalem Gran Reserva to an Innis & Gunn rum barrel-aged beer the other night though.
