MAKE A TASTY ALCOHOLIC TREAT AT HOME

When you feel like having a drink, but don’t really care to go out on the town, there is always another option: make a really fun and tasty drink from the comfort of your own home. It not only is a fun activity, but you can include friends for an exciting party at home. Make a ‘Cucumber Blondebloody Mary.’ The ingredients are 2 oz. blonde beer, 2 oz. Effen Cucumber Vodka, 4 grape tomatoes, 1 dash celery salt, 1 dash pepper, 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce, 1 dash hot sauce, ½ oz. lime juice, and a celery stick garnish. You will muddle the tomatoes, celery salt, and pepper in a cocktail shaker. Add the remaining ingredients except the beer. Add ice and strongly shake it all up. Strain into a glass filled with ice. If you are a ginger fan, you’ll love a ‘Dirty Bastard.’ The ingredients are ½ oz. ginger beer, 5 dashes of bitters, 1 ½ oz. Jameson Irish Whiskey, 1 oz. lime juice, and ¼ oz. simple syrup. To make the simple syrup, mix equal parts sugar and hot water until sugar is dissolved. Combine all ingredients except ginger beer in a cocktail shaker frilled with ice, and then shake and strain into a tin glass in you have one. Top with beer after. For a light and fun drink, try a ‘light apple.’ It’s made with ½ bottle of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Hard Cider, and ½ bottle of Sam Adams Light Beer. All you do is combine both and stir. It’s simple and delightful. Rum is yummy so try a ‘Jamexican Bodega Cobbler.’ It’s made with 1 oz. Appleton Estate Reserve Rum, ½ orange wheel, ½ oz. simple syrup, ¾ oz. lemon juice, and ½ cup of crushed ice. Combine all of the ingredients except the beer in a glass and stir. Then add crushed ice and top with beer. Fruit lovers will go bananas for ‘The Eclipse.’ It’s made with 1 ½ oz. tequila silver, 1 ½ oz. sour mix, ginger beer, 4 raspberries, 6 blueberries, and 3 mint leaves. You will muddle the raspberries, blueberries, and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker. Add tequila and sour mix. Shake strongly and strain into a glass filled with ice. Then top with beer. The blueberries can be added on top for a pretty garnish. Enjoy your cocktail night.
