Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Twisted Collins

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Twisted Collins

I wasn’t sure of the direction I wanted to go in for my final beer cocktail of this series, but I met a Dogfish Head sales rep last week and had the opportunity to taste their SeaQuench Ale. I was so impressed with it that my wheels immediately began spinning to find ways to work it into a drink. Hailed by Men’s Health Magazine as possibly “the world’s most thirst-quenching beer,” things like margaritas and mojitos immediate came to mind. SeaQuench is a session sour, which means that it is a beer

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Peanut Butter Cup Negroni?

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Peanut Butter Cup Negroni?

There are certain matches that are made in heaven: Lucy and Ethel, Sonny and Cher, dark beers and me… Yes yes, I have become a huge fan of brown ales, porters, and stouts during this learning process. I find them to be super smooth and very easy to drink, unlike IPAs (dare I say it?) that often end up giving me the hiccups. Is that an indication that I’m an amateur beer drinker? Quite possibly.

Flying Fish Brewing Company in Somerdale, NJ has a beer series based on the exits along the New Jersey Turnpike. As I was considering options for this week’s cocktail, I came upon their offering for Exit Three, which just so happened to be the exit closest to my house while growing up. Now I will readily admit to having a fascination with the Jersey Turnpike as a child. It’s okay if you’re thinking that’s a bit strange; I think it is too. I’m fairly certain that it comes from my love for maps, especially the

As I was perusing the beer aisle in my local liquor store looking for inspiration for this Wednesday’s post, I happened upon this Dragon & YumYums from Dogfish Head in Milton, Delaware. Who could resist such a fun name and such psychedelic label artwork?? Certainly not me. I was immediately intrigued. When I looked a bit more closely I noticed the name The Flaming Lips on the label as well. Now things were getting even more interesting. I had to know more! Let’s start off with the facts about

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Blood on the Tracks

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Blood on the Tracks

There is a classic cocktail called Blood and Sand that was created in London in celebration of a 1922 bullfighter movie of the same name. Its original recipe called for equal parts Scotch whisky, sweet vermouth, Cherry Heering, and orange juice. You all know how much I love the simplicity and elegance of an equal parts cocktail, but as I’ve said many times, it had better be a cocktail in which the ingredients are perfectly balanced or it will be readily apparent that something is very wrong. This is
