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.
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.
