Beer Cocktails

Just in time for summer Jason Wilson of the Washington Post has written a piece about beer cocktails. It's a great article that highlights some of the area establishments that offer beer cocktails such PS7's "The Cure" which I recently tasted. Beer can be a dynamic addition to a cocktail adding both complexity and lightness. As I've mentioned before, while living in Germany I worked as a bartender in a beer garden. The Germans couldn't get enough of what they call a Radler in the summer months. Also called a Shandy in the UK, it is comprised of about one part beer and one part Sprite. For people hearing of this for the first time it might sound a bit odd but it is incredibly refreshing with the soothing beer flavor complimented by the sweet lemon-lime soda. Give it a try the next time you're baking in the sun!
