The Last Call to Porter
This week back in 1814, enormous vats of ale at London’s Meux Brewery burst, letting loose a tsunami of beer. Sound awesome? Not for the people it killed. Hear the sobering tale, and chase it with a cocktail that won’t help you dry out.
“The Last Call to Porter,” as created by bartender Katie Rose of Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge in beer-soaked Milwaukee, WI:
- 1 oz. Knob Creek Bourbon
- 1/2 oz. Green Chartreuse
- 1/2 oz. Benedictine
- Porter beer
Shake up the hard liquor until it’s fit to burst. Strain into a coup glass, then flood the mix with your favorite porter beer (Katie recommends Milwaukee’s own Mudpuppy Porter). Don’t drink it in a basement.
