Cocktail O’Clock: The Gringo

Posted by on June 9 2011 in Drinks, Recipe, Restaurants

It’s a billion and one degrees outside. Does that call for a frosty beer? Or a cold glass of juice? Maybe a shot of tequila? How about all three?  Red Star Tavern in Portland, Oregon is now serving The Gringo, a beer-based cocktail that will make you forget all about the heat.

The Gringo

1.5 oz. silver tequila (100% agave)
.5 oz. St. Germain elderflower liqueur
1 oz. grapefruit juice
1 Double Mountain Vaporizer Pale Ale (or your favorite pale ale)

Shake tequila, elderflower, and grapefruit with ice. Strain over fresh ice.  Top off with pale ale. Serve in a salt-rimmed glass with a grapefruit twist.

    Brilliant! The Chavela used to be my go-to. I’m all about trying this!

    I’ve never tried a beer based cocktail before but it does sound the perfect drink for a warm summer’s evening. I’ll definitely be giving it a try.
