Beer Cocktails suit the moment and the melding of beer a spirits can sometimes be transcendental. And with late-summer lingering this one’s a keeper.
And Sierra Nevada’s beer cocktail marries the pleasures of Pink Lemonade with fresh fruit, late summer herbs and vodka.
This deceptively easy-to-make cocktail is crafted with Sierra Nevada’s popular Wild Little Thing, a 5.5% ABV fruit-forward Sour Ale with Guava, Hibiscus and Strawberries.
In addition to one can of Sierra Nevada’s widely available Sour Ale All you’ll need is a few basic ingredients to make this fruity frozen cocktail, but we suggest using a craft vodka.
Let’s do this!
Sierra Nevada Wild Little Thing Pink Lemonade
Ingredients (one serving)
1 can Wild Little Thing
9 large basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
1.5 ounces vodka
Quarter one strawberry and place pieces, basil leaves, sugar, and lemon juice at the bottom of a 12-ounce glass. Muddle vigorously.
Add vodka and fill the glass with ice.
Pour Wild Little Thing over ice until the glass is full.
Garnish with strawberry sliced down the middle and with a smacked basil sprig (place sprig in your palm and gently smack with the other hand).
