Last of the Summer Beer Cocktails

· News,Stiegl,Beer Cocktails

With the UK continuing to go cocktail crazy, some of the biggest names in beer have teamed up with a talented group of drink experts to showcase the ultimate arsenal of beer cocktails to enjoy before the summer fades.

The beers used in the cocktails below include:

Stiegl Grapefruit Radler (2% ABV) is refreshing, joyously juicy and the ultimate thirst-quencher. Orange in colour, naturally cloudy and made with real grapefruit juice to provide that terrifically tangy taste. Stiegl Radler lends itself especially well to beer cocktails so we've shared a host of recipes incorporating it including MEATLiquor’s famous Radlerita, drink writer Jonathan Hatchman’s Rad Paloma, beer writer Mark Dredge’s Campari Radler and blogger Happy Skin Kitchen’s Grapefruit Beerlini. (Full details of these recipes and four more fantastic beer cocktails are below).

Mikkeller Hallo Ich Bin Raspberry (3.7% ABV) is a Berliner-style weisse beer brewed with raspberries. It pours an eye-catching ruby red with big raspberry jam aromas and contrasting tart and sweet dominating the flavour. See below for the Ich Bin Raspberry Float by food and drink writer Jonathan Hatchman.

To Øl 45 Days Organic Pilsner (4.7% ABV) is a crisp and refreshing pilsner with a delicately balanced

complexity, thanks to the 45-day fermentation and maturation process. You don’t rush a

good Pilsner. I've tailered my very own mimosa imposter... The Mitch Mimosa using 45 Day Pils

Mikkeller Limbo Series Raspberry (0.3% ABV) is a Flemish primitive no alcohol beer brewed with raspberries. A refreshing non-alcoholic beer made using Mikkeller’s own yeast strain - Mikkellensis. Tons and tons of raspberries are also used for a light, fruity & tart palate. Our very own Andy Bennett (Head of Sales) likes nothing more than to kick back after reffing a match with his take on an alcohol free slushy... Beer Granita by Euroboozer’s Andy Bennett
