Nice to try: these cocktails are made with beer!

Must Try

Along time ago we joined a fantastic dinner at Lowlander . As a celebratory entrant there we were treated to a beer-based cocktail – we liked it. In fact: we are curious which cocktails you can actually brew with lager or specialty beer.

Cocktails with beer


A Michelada is a Mexican beer cocktail. A Bloody Mary in fact, substituting vodka for light lager. Just like in a Bloody Mary, hot sauce is also involved, lime juice freshens things up a bit.

A Michelada really doesn’t need a spectacular beer choice, in the Southern homelands of the cocktail they don’t open dark specialty beers either. Taste? It’s on the menu at Sjefietshe or Local Dealer , or simply make them yourself .


Let’s jump to the ’60s and ’70s, when Shandy turned out to be all the rage. A Shandy (or in Dutch popularly: a snow white) is a simple mix of one part beer and four parts Seven Up.

Sounds like something you wouldn’t serve your 13-year-old teenager yet? You can always make a Shandy more mature by using equal parts beer-soft drink or by adding a dash of gin. This version with blood orange also seems delicious.

Black Velvet

Sparkling wine and Guinness combine to produce a Black Velvet. Legend has it that the cocktail was conceived by a bartender from the London cocktail bar Brooks’s Club. The country was mourning the death of Prince Albert at the time – in 1861. A cocktail with a black color turned out to be in order.

Admittedly: we haven’t tasted this cocktail ourselves yet, so we can’t say for sure whether it’s tasty. Although you can also serve cocktails at our coffee table. And beer.

Aperol Mist

Ever heard of Aperol Mist? Think of it as the naughty brother of Aperol Spritz. No bubbles or sparkling water, here Aperol is topped off with (Belgian) beer and fresh lime juice. To put it in Alison Roman ‘s words: who could argue with that?

Beer’s Knees

Beer doesn’t just lend itself well to cocktails, the word is also the ideal ingredient for puns. Do you combine those two things? Then you get a Beer’s Knees. That’s right: that’s a Bee’s Knees cocktail with beer in it (in addition to the honey, lemon and gin from the original cocktail). To make? Bon Appétit has a good recipe .
