Bourbon and Beer unite

The Black-beery Smash combines Whiskey and Wheat Beer, with fresh muddled mint and blackberries for one boozey doozey.

Drink of the week: Black-Beery Smash

Let’s continue with our NC Beer Month Cocktail Series, shall we? We have one delicious beer-infused concoction for this Drink of the Week: Black-beery Smash.

This recipe comes to us from Serena Wolf and the Cocktails and Confessions kitchen, and it has a funny story behind it which you can check out in the video below.

Sticking to our NC Beer selection, we paired an ice cold Weeping Willow Wit from Mother Earth Brewing with our favorite Jameson Irish Whiskey.

We also substituted a wooden spoon for a muddler, as we didn’t have one on hand. We really enjoyed the sweetness the blackberries added to the Black-Beery Smash, and might experiment with how well it would work with strawberries, as they are in season here in Coastal NC. Grab yourself a glass, and mix up a Black-Beery Smash!
