Lavender Shandy


We like the Leinenkugel’s Lemon Shandy as the base beer, because it swings a bit sweeter, but offers some really pleasant citrus bite. The lavender syrup adds a few extra layers, and the vodka strengthens the back end.

Rogue Wind


Beertails tend to not get the lion’s share of attention. They tend to be difficult, and for the most part, beer is ready to drink by itself. However, every once in a while you come across a beer that’s just begging to be mixed. Rogue Brewery’s Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry, and Chocolate ale is just […]

Bar and Shield – Harley Davidson 110th Anniversary Cocktail


We’re unabashed motorcycle enthusiasts here at Cocktails, 365. While we (obviously) never recommend indulging in our two favorite past times at the SAME time, there are few things we find more relaxing than cracking open a beer, putting on the work clothes and tinkering around on the bikes in our stable.

ORIGINAL — Malibu Brewery


January 3, 2012 (Day 280) — Malibu Brewery Occasionally we’ve talked about the mystical world of “Beertails.” Beertails, you see, are cocktails that feature beer as the main ingredients. Now, this is much harder than it sounds, as beer is such a complex type of drink that to able to find the proper ingredients to […]

The Troublemaker


September 30, 2011 (Day 185) — The Troublemaker “He just goes from town to town/Stirring up the young folks/’Til they’re nothing but a disrespectful mob.” – Willie Nelson, The Troublemaker Spoiler Alert: This song is about Jesus. So, do I feel uncomfortable making a cocktail based on a song written by a drunk stoner about […]



June 18, 2011 (Day 82) — Chantels For those unfortunate enough to not know about the Chantels, they were a Motown group from the 1950s who produced some great hits and still manage to make me wistful. Tonight’s drink is called Chantels because it’s a take off of the classic Shandy, which is beer and […]

Gold Rush


June 17, 2011 (Day 81) — Gold Rush When they’re done right, beertails are hella tasty cocktails that can impress visitors and fans alike. That introduction has nothing to do with tonight’s drink. Tonight’s drink makes me think of crazy toothless prospectors. Gold Rush 1 oz bourbon whiskey 1 oz vodka Smithwick’s Ale Combine all […]

Half and Half

Here's to you St. Patty!

March 16, 2010 (Day 45) — Half and Half Truth be told, neither Jenn or I are Irish. I’m German and she’s French/Scottish. Despite this, we have a certian proclivity for all things Irish. And considering tomorrow is officially St. Patrick’s Day, I figured I’d wet your appetite for the drunkfest tomorrow with a classic […]
