Sahara’s Blog Post #7: Craft Beer Cocktails

For this month’s blog, I thought we could have a little fun! Below are 5 recipes for craft beer cocktails, to help you ride out the August heat in style.

The following recipes will make two drinks, or one super awesomely huge drink:

The Crabbie Mule

A traditional Moscow Mule with an extra kick from Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer.

1 bottle Crabbie’s Ginger Beer

3 oz vodka

Juice of 1 lime

Stir together over ice and serve in a highball glass or copper mug. Garnish with a lime wedge


The Salty Stiegl

The Salty Dog is one of my favorite summer cocktails. If you’re not a fan of gin, you can substitute vodka.

1 can Stiegl Radler

3 oz gin

3 oz grapefruit juice

Stir together over ice and serve in a Tom Collins glass with a salted rim


The Goserita

I was at a wedding last year with a tequila bar, and a cask of Real Ale Gose. That night, the Goserita was born, and history was made!

I can Real Ale Gose

3 oz tequila

½ oz Cointreau

Juice of 1 lime

In a shaker, mix lime juice, tequila, and Cointreau. Pour over ice into margarita glasses with salted rims. Top with Real Ale Gose.



One of the most popular beer-based cocktails out there. A fun twist on a Bloody Mary.

1 can Peacemaker

Juice from 2 limes

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp tabasco

1 tsp soy sauce

Combine all ingredients except Peacemaker in shaker. Pour over ice into salted pint glasses. Top with Peacemaker. Garnish with a celery stalk, or your favorite Bloody Mary toppers.


The Love Struck Sunrise

If a Tequila Sunrise and a Beermosa had a baby…

1 bottle of Love Struck Heffe

4 oz Lindeman’s Kriek

Orange juice

Pour Love Struck Heffe evenly between two pint glasses. Top with orange juice and float Lindeman’s Kriek on top. Omit the Kriek for another classic, the Beermosa!
