We’re all about simple recipes that work well while entertaining and I personally love playing mixologist when we have friends over for dinner and drinks.
Making delicious cocktails for your friends to show off your bartending skills is always fun, right? With this recipe, you also have the ingredients for people to just grab a beer, or whiskey on the rocks if they wish. But if they’re down for the show, they can have you shake up this fantastic Blackberry Brew Cocktail.
With the deep, rich flavor of Guinness Draught beer and finishing with a blackberry-lime kick, you and your guests will be asking for a second round. I find that the whiskey tones down the hops flavor a little bit, the berry and lime bring out the richness of the Guinness, and everything ties together in a wonderful medley of flavors that goes down smooth.
Food pairings you need to try!
Besides this being an easy cocktail to make, food pairings are really simple too. You can serve the Blackberry Brew with everything from Irish beef stew, soda bread, or corned beef hash burgers. If you’re not going the Irish route, try beer battered fish and chips, grilled meats, or even your favorite tacos and empanadas. The possibilities are truly endless.
