Beer Cocktails @ The Picture House Social
Beer cocktails by nature are a bit of an oxymoron. Brewers often dub them as a waste of good beer and bartenders eschew their gimmicky nature. But the guys at Picture House Social are never ones to shy away from a challenge, and with Sheffield Beer Week in full swing, they decided to come up with three unique creations to try and tackle the stereotype.
With a handful of beer bloggers in attendance (and even more following the evening’s proceedings via the #SheffBeerWeek Twitter Hour) it was a tough crowd, but everyone was won over immediately with ‘A Kraken Coffee’. This was a devilishly sweet rum based drink that turned the traditional Espresso Martini on its head by introducing a syrup made from Crate stout and a delicious coffee foam. We were off to a good start.
Number two was a ‘Pamplemouse Fizz’ that incorporated Flor de Cana 4 rum, maraschino, pamplemouse rose syrup, lime, grapefruit and egg white with a Magic Rock Salty Kiss top. Practically the opposite of the first, this was fresh and zingy. It’d be perfect for a summer’s evening.
Pop down to the Picture House Social this week to try them for yourself and follow @SheffBeerWeek for the latest beery goings on.
