Look at these fools! This is how you throw a backyard bash. Or, an amazing roadtrip. Or, a pop-up beer garden. Also, this lovely cocktail is another suggestion to add to our growing summer beer cocktail list.
Recipe adapted from Jim Meehan of P.D.T
Makes one drink
1½ ounces Black Grouse Blended Scotch Whisky
½ ounce white grapefruit juice
½ ounce honey syrup (1:1 honey to water)
¼ ounce dill pickle brine, plus 1 pickle spear
¼ teaspoon Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard
6 ounces Captain Lawrence Pale Ale
In a mixing glass, combine the whiskey, grapefruit juice, honey syrup, brine and mustard and stir to combine. Rim a pilsner glass with black pepper and fill with ice, then fine-strain the contents of the mixing glass into the pilsner glass. Top with the beer and garnish with a pickle spear.
