Raise A Pint With These Beertails For National Beer Day
A quick search on Google reveals that Americans consume 50 billion pints of beer each year, making it the third most popular alcoholic beverage in the country.
I’m pretty certain the staff at YouGottaEatThis contributed to that number, and if you been a loyal reader since day one, you know it’s true. In honor of National Beer Day (April 7), we’d like to highlight some hops-inspired cocktails with a twist.
Below are two mixers inspired by Cruzan Rum. They’re extremely refreshing and only take a few minutes to make.
1 ½ parts Cruzan® Black Strap Rum
1 bottle of Chocolate or coffee stout beer
Method: Combine ingredients in a pint glass. Stir gently.
Cruzan® Brew Berry Mojito
1 1/2 parts Cruzan® Strawberry Rum
1/2 part Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 part Agave Nectar
5 parts Blonge Lager
3 Fresh Strawberries
8-12 Mint Leaves
Method: Muddle strawberry, mint and agave nectar in a tall glass. Add lemon juice, rum and ice and shake. Add beer, shake lightly, and strain over ice into glass of choice. Garnish with a halved strawberry and sprig of mint.
