This winter wonderland beer cocktail was designed by Nat Harry, one of Bison's favorite mixologists and author of the awesome food and booze blog, Alpha Cook. Nat is also a great photographer, as evidenced by the picture below. Make sure to check out her blog for more great cocktail recipes and follow her on Twitter @alphacook!
Lump of Coal was created last year for a winter beer cocktail event, but we think it is tasty enough to drink all year round!
Lump of Coal
.5 Old Bardstown bourbon
.5 Leopold’s cherry liqueur
.5 Averna amaro
2 dashes maple bitters*
1.5 oz Bison Organic Chocolate Stout
Shake all ingredients together vigorously, serve in coupe or stemmed cocktail glass.
*I used housemade maple bitters here, but you try using Urban Moonshine’s maple bitters, or just leave them out.
