Enlightenment | Cocktail Party

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.

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.
