Beer cocktails for beerheads

I dunno what am gettin into here. Beer cocktails?? Well, they exist, so no point ignoring them.

Beer is a watered-down drink as it is, so ideally its best not to add too much of anything non-alcoholic into it, tho small amounts are fine. I tend to take my beer with a couple of shots of lime cordial for two reasons – it tastes good; and i end up drinking a lot faster and a lot more. Coz d problem with beer is the filling feel it gives.

Goddam beer is pretty versatile. Here are some of the more well-known cocktails.

Beer - more than a breakfast drink

1. Lager Lime – Like i said, beer with about 1.5 shots of lime cordial. (To know more about drink measurements, refer my post here.)

2. Snakebite – Half a pint of lager with half a pint of cider. Usually, a dash of blackcurrant cordial, “black”, is added as a sweetener. This is sometimes known as ‘diesel’. Some variants “float” the beer atop the cider in separate layers. Goes down too easy. A true Snakebite will also have a shot of vodka.

3. Black and Tan – Half and half – pale ale at the bottom, stout on the top. The most well-known brands of pale ale are Bass, Cooper’s and Sierra Nevada. Cant seem to find ’em here. Was a favourite when i was part-timing as a bartender in UK.

4. Black Velvet – Half stout, half champagne. Haha! Sounds like a winner. Cant wait to try dis one!

5. Red Eye – Add a shot (30ml) of tomato juice to any ale or lager (this cocktail is also known as Tomato Beer or a Red Rooster). Hmm. Dunno bout this, bout sounds ok.

6. Cili Haram – Add a few drops of Tabasco into your beer. Created this when i was bored at a bar. Also coz i miss this Mexican chili beer i used to have, dont remember in which country. At d bottom of d bottle there’ll be a cute lil mafucker, looks like a cili padi. Adds spice to every sip. Can recreate d effect with Tabasco.

7. Bee Sting – Dark beer plus some orange juice. I’d think lager / wheat beer would be a bettter choice.

8. I dunno what its called or who made it, maybe me – Lager with a few drops of Ribena.

9. Caribbean Night – Beer and a shot of coffee liqueur. Interesting.

10. Name unknown (lets call it Todi Negro) – toddy + stout. A favourite locally-created cocktail.

11. Top 10 – a Sabah specialty – half lager, half Royal Stout / Guinness Foreign Extra Stout. D wilder chicks over there seem to luv it!

12. Donkey Piss – Beer + tequila = Bad idea.

OK, now go fuck around with beer.

  1. I like a pint of lager with 2 shots of JD in the bottom 😀 Dunno wtf that is called.

    Yah snakebites are deadly, used to be a student favourite in UK for getting smashed fast.

    The deadliest was a bottle of diamond white + a bottle of stella artois.

    My favourite for casual lunch time drinking is lager top (pint of lager with about 1/2 inch of lemonade on the top). Similar effect as lager lime.

  2. some friends put kicap, cili sos and ajinomoto in their beers. one of them ended puking out his dinner. moral of the story: don’t eat before you drink!

  3. Yea man, good ol’ Lager Top. Works best with the soda dispensing gun. And how could i forget the most popular beer cocktail of all – the shandy! Beer + lemonade soda.
    Kicap in beer is kinda extreme. Almost as bad as a submarine!

  4. when i want to get hammered, irish car bombs are the way to go..drop a shot glass containing irish whiskey and irish cream into a 1/2 pint of guinness stout and bottoms up!

  5. Black velvet is served traditionally on New Years day at the Royal Selangor club long bar from 12 pm onward. All on the house for a couple of hours into the afternoon. It supposedly works rather well as a cure for hangovers too, which is probably why its served on the 1st as well.
    Pretty nice drink, and I’ll remember to invite you for a couple of shots next New Years day Deep, if you’re up to it.

  6. Irish Car Bombs are fuckin great man. No doubt.
    Doc, will take u up on dat offer! Sounds like some fun. Noon drinking is cool.
    Best choice i guess would be not go to bed at all. Or wake up to a Black Velvet brunch!

  7. I dunno what its called or who made it, maybe me – Lager with a few drops of Ribena. – Lager & Black- women in the UK drink it a lot..there they use the fake b/currant stuff. Goes well with cheap US beers like Miller, Buds and Coors..
