The Sketchy Deal

This one came about during the election season as a way to artfully pair a shot and a beer in the same glass.

  • 1 oz bourbon of your choosing
  • .5 oz Aperol
  • .5 oz lemon juice
  • .25 Marie Brizard orange liqueur
  • 2 oz brown ale or similar roasty, malty beer

Build in order over ice in a double old fashioned or collins style glass, garnish with a wedge of lemon. The finished product is slightly bitter from the Aperol, malty and chocolaty from the ale with a nice citrus pop in it from the remaining ingredients.

Congratulations to Bryan and Beth on their beautiful wedding! Two of my best friends were married on the fifth, so I was out of town and away from the blog for a few to have the honor of being a groomsman, thank you, and cheers to you both!

A one post break from my promised sake series is due, Cocky Yamazaki has been getting some press in the DC cocktail scene. Here are some articles for your perusal, though one of them did mix up some of the numbers I gave, they are still worth a read:
