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.
