It seems summer-like temps settled in early. With outdoor grilling in mind, I reached out to my favorite local beer connection for a hot day, beer cocktail recipe. Kevin’s Blushing Belgian recipe is perfect for summer sipping.
Kevin Bennet is a regular and popular guest on The 2 Weird Hungry Girls podcast and the owner of Local Buzz Consulting. He is the former president of the Kutztown Brew Crew and is always in the know about fizzy to oaked libations.
It was just a whim of mine, a beer cocktail and he pulled through with his recipe. I’ll admit I was rather surprised (though I never doubt Kevin) how rather darn tasty, juicy and refreshing this beer cocktail turned out. Kevin recommended a Belgium style wheat beer for the base. I went to the local brewing experts at Stoudt’s Brewery to find a brew.
Stoudt’s Heifer-in-Wheat was perfect in this cocktail and with 12 IBU’s it’s easy sipping. If you are looking to add a bit more spice and fruit, try the Triple. It has 37 IBU’s so you may only have one but it will be one good drink on a hot day!
- 1 ounce peach or raspberry schnapps
- 1 bottle Stoudt’s Brewery Heifer-in-Wheat or Triple Beer (Belgian-style wheat beer)
- Orange juice
- Orange wedge, optional
- Add peach schnapps to a tall glass, pour the Heifer-in-Wheat over the shot, add a splash of orange juice and enjoy. Garnish with an orange wedge (if you’re cool with that kind of thing).
