MAKE THIS: BLOODY BREWSKI IS A GREAT SPIN ON THE BLOODY MARY

Bloody Brew Trio 1I decided to give my own take on the Bloody Mary. More and more bartenders are trying it with beer instead of vodka, and that’s what I’ve done here.
I can say, without question: I like this Bloody Brewski more than I like a Bloody Mary! It has a lighter body with all the flavor. It’s a perfect daytime summer drink I think you’ll really enjoy.
Here’s how to do it yourself!
I am really intrigued and excited about what mixologists are doing with beer these days. The idea of mixing beer into a cocktail isn’t new, but still seems to be reserved for bars and restaurants – not a lot of people have been trying it at home. I’m here to tell you, you need to!
