The Pinyon’s Cocktail 16

Beer in a cocktail? You bet. This spice-infused creation from the master mixologists at The Pinyon brings together the delicious worlds of craft beer and craft vodka in one outstanding cocktail.

Start by placing a handful of cardamom in a small sauce pan and boil until you create a concentrated liquid reduction. Strain and allow to cool. When ready to serve, pour six ounces of Two Jokers Double-Wit beer from the Boulevard Brewing Company into a wine glass, and combine that with one and a half ounces of Vodka 14, a quarter ounce of the cardamom reduction, the fresh-squeezed juice of a quarter lemon, and a quarter ounce of organic simple syrup. Stir gently. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
