Okay, I had to try a cocktail called Skull Smoker even though I'm not a super big beer fan, but tickle me intrigued. I've seen and even sampled a few sips of beer based cocktails (usually when my husband gets excited and orders the wrong thing on the cocktail menu without reading the description), so I decided to use the few beers I have left in the fridge for experimentation time!
I looked at the ingredient list and it has things I love, rum (check!) and lime juice (check!) and it's easy to make (check!!). The verdict, I liked it! The cayenne pepper mixed with the stout has a nice finishing 'bite' of spice while the lime juice and rum seem to mellow out the bitterness of the stout beer. This one filled me up very quickly. *Burp*
Skull Smoker Ingredients:
12 oz. chilled stout beer (I used Guiness)
2 oz. chilled rum
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 tsp. chilled lime juice
Add cayenne pepper, lime juice and rum into a tall cold glass. Mix well. Slowly pour in 12 oz. of chilled stout beer and mix carefully.
*Tip if you like things spicy, feel free to add more cayenne pepper!
