It’s the end of Spring Break week. Which means it’s time to take this Spring Break into Overtime!
The Overtime knows what time it is. It’s Miller time! Or Corona time! Or time for whatever beer is still left in the ol’ cooler. Time to double down on the chances of earning a bad reputation and a court summons — except you won’t, because as much as the concept of spiking beer with Jameson seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen, what’s actually gonna happen is, you’re gonna take a sip, and the Overtime’s wickedly spicy bite is gonna cause you to pause and wonder, how is it possible this cocktail tastes so good?
About 3 or 4 ounces your leftover beer of choice (lagers, IPAs and Pilseners will do nicely — and, of course, don’t pick something too leftover, fresher is better)
1 ounce Jameson
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
2 dashes Tabasco
Margarita salt, for the rim
Do up the rim of a highball glass with salt. Combine all liquid ingredients into ice-filled cocktail shaker, give it just a few shakes to chill, strain into salt-rimmed glass.
For the record, I used the same Sam Adams Noble Pils for the Overtime as I did for the Shandygaff. Again, worked like a charm.
Only got one citrus on hand? Personally, I’d be very comfy doing one ounce of lime juice and eschewing the lemon.
