The Manitou Cocktail

Posted by on Aug 20, 2012 in DRINK RECIPES, Spring44 GIN | No Comments

In Colorado, we take beer seriously.  So it’s only natural that we team up with some of our friends in the brewing world to create some great cocktails using their beer.  Keep your eye on our Facebook and Twitter for updates on Beer Cocktail events.

In the meantime, here are some beer cocktails you can make at home.

“The Manitou” – Our official beer cocktail for the Manitou Craft Lager Festival.  If you are a hoppy beer fan or just a fan of the classic G&T you should try this.

2 oz. Spring44 Gin

2 oz. Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (fresh squeezed lime juice can also be used for a different twist)

1/4 oz. simple syrup

5 oz. Hoppy Beer like an IPA

Place gin, juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker and shake.  Strain into a pint glass with ice and top off with beer.
