Beggar’s Banquet

Another maple syrup cocktail, but this time one with beer! I found the recipe over on Liquor.com and spent most of the weekend serving ’em up to bar patrons.

About This Cocktail
A bourbon and beer drink with maple syrup for sweetener and some citrus for flavor.


2 ounces bourbon
2 dashes Angostura bitters
.25 oz lemon juice
.75 oz maple syrup
Southern Tier Harvest (Or Phin & Matt’s)

Add all of the ingredients, except the beer, to a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a tall glass (highball, collins) and pack it full with fresh ice. Top with beer and garnish with an orange wedge.

At my bar, we only have Southern Tier on tap. The recipe called for Old Speckled Hen, which is an English ale. The Phin & Matt’s worked alright. It’s an American-style Pale ale. For my money though, the Harvest, which is a bitter, worked really well in this drink.
