If you’re tired of sugary cocktails but don’t want to just pop open a beer for your guests, then beer cocktails might be the perfect compromise. Bubbly beer combines with flavorful syrups, tangy fruit, and other booze to create a drink that’s simple to mix and will leave guests wanting more. Ever versatile, most beer varieties pair surprisingly well with liquors to make refreshing drinks at home. For a more summery feel, perfect for outdoor events and grilling, choose a pale beer. For cooler months, darker beers will provide a rich and satisfying mix.
Honey Cider-Beer Cocktails
Whether it's an adult version of an ice cream float, a pilsner bloody mary, or a citrus-spiked shandy, these beer cocktails are perfect for changing up your booze game. Easy to mix, and cheaper than solely serving liquor-based drinks to guests, beer cocktails are needed at your next party or tailgate.
The cider-honey base of this fall beverage makes enough for a whole batch. Beer and cider are refreshing and lower in sugar and alcohol than stronger potions, which tend to go down a bit too easily. The cider syrup needs time to cool; let it rest while you get ready for your party.
