Enlightenment

We love clever drinks like the Enlightenment that swap in beer for club soda or sparkling wine – it’s a refreshing way to get a bit of bubbly in and lighten up otherwise-heavy ingredients.

This recipe, from mixologist Aidan Demarest, works with any light-flavored beer: lager, wheat beer, or even a mild IPA.

Do not, under any circumstances, use anything but genuine pomegranate syrup for the grenadine here! A corn-syrup-and-red-#5 substitute like Rose’s will be cloying and sickly-sweet. Real grenadine is a rich purple syrup of pomegranate juice, sugar, and occasionally lemon juice and a few other botanical flavors.

 

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the beer) with ice, and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Top with the beer and garnish with a wheel, wedge, or twist of lemon.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
