An Irish Car Bomb is a cocktail, similar to a boilermaker, made by dropping a bomb shot of Irish cream and whiskey into a glass of stout. The Irish Shot is a 1979 invention that quickly took off in Irish pubs and other bars around the U.S. It was first created by Charles Burke Cronin Oat.
A michelada is a Mexican cocktail made with beer, lime juice, assorted sauces, spices, tomato juice, and chili peppers. It is served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass. The Michelada’s origins are unclear, with multiple legends surrounding its creation. But it likely dates back to the middle of the 20th century when it became popular in Mexico. There are multiple variations of this drink throughout the country.
A porch crawler is a mixed beverage made primarily of beer, liquor, and a sweetening agent (for instance, lemonade concentrate). The most standard liquors for the drink are vodka, gin, rum, or whiskey. It’s ideal for parties and the ingredients are scaled to make a whole pitcher rather than a drink at a time, anyway. A good quality beer makes the cocktail even better.
A Queen Mary is created by mixing beer with a few teaspoons of grenadine, to taste. This mixed drink is typically served in beer glassware, leaving room for a generous amount of beer head which can take on a pink or cherry-like tone. In North America the Queen Mary cocktail is a popular alternative to a Shandy. The drink can also be found in other regions of the world, including Europe.
The sake bomb or sake bomber is a beer cocktail obtained by pouring sake into a shot glass and dropping it into a glass of beer. It is also believed that the cocktail recipe was actually invented by American soldiers who were occupying Japan after World War II, and that is the reason why the cocktail is much more popular in America than it is in Japan.
Shandy is a beer cocktail mixed with a lemon or a lemon-lime flavored beverage. The citrus part, often called lemonade, may or may not be carbonated. The ratios of the two ingredients are adjusted to taste but are usually half lemonade and half beer. This combination makes for a refreshing beverage on a crisp sunny spring afternoon.
A snakebite is a cocktail drink from the United Kingdom made with equal parts of lager and cider. If a dash of blackcurrant cordial is added, it is known as a "snakebite & black" or a "diesel". Different regional recipes and names exist. Stout may be used instead of lager in the United States and is typically served in a pint glass.
A U-Boot is a beer cocktail obtained by placing a shot of vodka into a glass of beer, typically a lager. It is called a U-Boot (German abbreviation of Unterseeboot, "submarine") because the shot glass of vodka sinks to the bottom of the glass of beer. The shot glass then "surfaces" when the cocktail is drunk.
