The (Hop) Skip and Go Naked cocktail is pretty basic. It's usually made with vodka, lemonade and beer served in a tall, ice filled glass. I've seen variations that use gin and sometimes pink lemonade is employed to give the drink some color.
It's a refreshing little summer beverage but it's also a bit like a sixties surfer dude drinking beer bumped uglies with an eighties prom queen drinking her first pop cocktail while their drinks splashed together. Much like the millennial progeny that ugly bumping might produce, the drink is simple and not all that interesting.
I say we send the prom queen to go watch Carrie and point Surfer Dude towards the store to pick up some more innovative ingredients.
SKIP AND GO NAKED
for the 21st Century
1 Oz. Four Roses Bourbon
2 Oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
Garnish: Homemade Bourbon Cherry
Tools: Cocktail Shaker
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice then pour in the bourbon, fresh lemon juice and ginger simple syrup.
Shake until chilled, strain into an ice filled, chilled Collins glass.
Top off with the Cherry Cola ale, garnish and serve.
P.S. I knew I'd find a way to use the rest of that Best Damn Brewing Co. Cherry Cola Ale I reviewed in a cocktail!
