We’ve all had that moment when you can’t make up your mind on what to order to drink. Do you want a cold refreshing beer? Do you want a cocktail to take the edge off from a long day at the office? That’s when the “aha” moment occurs ... Why should you have to choose when you can have both!
Last month we introduced three new Beer Cocktails to our menu at BRGR Kitchen+Bar! We know what you’re probably thinking… anyone can pour beer into a mixed drink. Not to worry we did so much more than that! Each cocktail was carefully crafted by our very own Director of Beverage, Scott Tipton.
The K.C. Collins combines a Kansas City staple, Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat, with the refreshing and balanced SD Strong Gin to create a crisp and thirst-quenching cocktail. We then added Génépy de Alpes to intensify the sweet and herbal qualities of the drink and topped it off with crème de cassis. A little bit of lemon to bring out the tartness, this beer cocktail is sure to please all of your taste buds.
The Tank Williams incorporates another Kansas City favorite, Boulevard’s Tank 7. The grapefruit-hoppy notes of this straw-colored Saison are balanced with the smooth and sweet characteristics of Evan Williams Honey. Peach shrub is added to give it a hint of that perfect, peachy flavor and then it is garnished with mint. This refreshing cocktail is perfect for a warm, spring afternoon on the patio.
The Truth Serum is one for you Whiskey Drinkers! This simple yet bold cocktail is made with a spiced syrup infused with the Dark Truth Stout from Boulevard Brewing Company. Are you sensing a theme here? The syrup is combined with another Kansas City staple, J. Rieger Co. KC Whiskey, to make a powerful and slightly sweet cocktail that is then complemented by orange bitters. The Truth Serum is the perfect way to start the weekend or the perfect nightcap to end your night.
If you haven’t already jumped in the car or hopped in an Uber to come try one of these delicious drinks, we look forward to serving you one soon at either of the BRGR locations.
