National Beer Lovers Day
12 Oz. Mexican Beer (I used Corona)
Juice of 2 Fresh Limes
1 Tsp. Maggi or Soy Sauce
1 Tsp. Cholula Chipotle Sauce
2 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
Lime Slice and Assorted Vegetables for Garnish
Smoked Artisan Salt
Course Ground Pepper
In a plate mix together the salts and the pepper. Rub the rim of your glass with lime juice then dip in the salt/pepper mixture and place glass in the freezer to chill. Combine the beer, lime juice, soy or Maggi sauce, Chipotle sauce and Worcestershire sauce in the bottom of your glass, fill glass with ice then slowly add your chilled beer. Give the mixture a couple of stirs and garnish with the slice of lime and some fun veggies to munch on.
This goes great with my Four Cheese Quesadillas with Fresh Pico de Gallo!
THE LOADED RED EYE
(or Red Beer)
inspired by the movie "Cocktail" with Tom Cruise
This is also known as a Beer Bloody Mary and I have added my requisite Bloody Mary accents. In the traditional Red Eye you simply mix tomato juice with beer and add a raw egg....but that was before all the egg worries of today. I also like to add a splash of vodka - what can I say?
4 Oz. Tomato Juice
12 Oz. Beer (again I used Corona)
A Splash of Vodka
Juice of 1/4 Lemon
Dash of Tabasco
Optional: 1/2 Tsp. of Horseradish Sauce
Course Ground Pepper
Assorted Snack Garnishes
Rim your glass with some lemon then dip into the kosher salt. Chill your glass. Add the Worcestershire, lemon juice, Tabasco, Celery Salt to your glass, fill half way with ice, pour on the vodka (if you're adding it) then slowly add the beer. Give the whole kit and caboodle a good stir then grind on your pepper and garnish with the celery stick, lemon slice and some fun munchies on a stick - here I used smoked Gouda wrapped in salami and a nice marinated artichoke heart.
This goes really nicely with my Cheese Crisps (Frico)!
ENJOY & HAVE A VERY HAPPY BEER LOVERS DAY!
