Orange Hopsicle Brewtail

This may be one of the best beer cocktails . . . er, brewtails I've ever made.  

The orange of the triple sec and the spice of the bitters combines perfectly with the bitter hoppiness of an IPA.

Perfectly refreshing and unbelievably delicious!

I used Smuttynose Finestkind IPA, but you can use whatever you like.

Orange Hopsicle

2 Oz Triple Sec
2 Dashes Bitters
½ Oz Simple Syrup
3 Oz IPA

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add triple sec, bitters and simple syrup. 

Shake, shake, shake senora.

Strain into a glass.

Top with the IPA.


To make simple syrup combine equal parts granulated sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.
