Boddington Beertail


It took me a while to catch up on the phenomenon called the Beertails. I love my ales in their pure form and the occasional cocktails. And when the Spice guy started developing his own Beertails, I had to give in. After all he usually mixes new drinks to pair with the food I cook. And the least I can do is to taste them. Right? Well that’s a very valid excuse to drink. Don’t you think?

If you have ever enjoyed a michelada, a Mexican beer cocktail that has hot sauces and peppers and lime juice that give it an extra kick or the shandy, that has beer & lemonade or apple juice mixed in you have had a beertail.

Beertail is a cocktail and a beer all in one. Take your favorite cocktail and add in a beer that will not only go with the flavors of the cocktail, but also enhance it. Since the drink is essentially layered you get to experience the taste of the beer, the beer & cocktail and then the cocktail. Now that is quite a drink!

The sweet aromatic flavor of the St. Germain Liquer shines through the  creamy, malty, sweet flavor of the Boddingtons. Pairs well with fried and spicy foods.

  2. I haven’t had a shandy since our years in Bermuda– that was always my treat after 18 holes of golf. What a life that was! I will have to try similar beertails. I am not sure what my husband will say if I add tequila to his favorite Boddington’s but I’ll try it in mine!
