Suds up your cocktails with these flavorful brew-tails from Soltado Tequila, just in time for spring! Here are a few of our favorite tips to ensure your best brew-tail experience:

1.Chill, baby, chill.  Make sure your beer is cold before using it in a cocktail. While other drinks can be cooled with ice, in a brewtail, it’s just going to water down the drink. The colder the better, before you mix.

2. Please don’t shake your beer. This should be common sense, but if you shake a beer cocktail,  you’ll lose the bubbles. This is part of the experience of a beer cocktail, so remember to stir gently.

3. Pair before you pour. Some beers will work better with certain ingredients. Just like pairing food with wine or a cocktail, certain flavors will pair better with different styles of beer. Lagers and lighter beers work well with citrus and sweet/sour flavors-think Dos Equis, Hefeweizen, or Modelo Especial. Hoppy beers pair well with bitter ingredients, herbs and spice, while dark beers and stouts can hold up to chocolate, caramel, and creamy dessert-style cocktails, like an adult milkshake.
