Cocktail O’Clock: The Gringo
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.
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.
