Beer Cocktails

17/03/2015

Beer cocktails are nothing new. Beer has been used as a cocktail ingredient for many many years. The 'Flip' - a heated mix of beer, rum and sugar that was drunk around the1690s and the 'Boilermaker' - a beer and whisky chaser drank by metal craftsmen working on North American steam locomotives.  

The craft beer boom of recent years along with the ever popular cocktail list, has thrown beer cocktails back into the limelight, as mixologists from all over the world play around with a wider variety of hop and malt flavours than ever before available.

We gave the mixologists at one of our favourite cocktail bars a selection of the beers we import and then went down one afternoon to talk beer cocktails with them and see what they came up with. And what a fun afternoon it was! This formed the basis of the Heathwick 'Inspired Cocktails' suggestions and we're always adding to it - let us know if you have a great recipe and we'd love to feature it!
