The Eternal Riff

This cocktail is the third iteration of an ongoing collaboration I have with Brian Johnson from the Better Cocktails at Home YouTube Channel.  Basically we started with one cocktail, then “pass” it over to the other person to make a riff on it.

 

I loved Brian’s take on the drink – adding beer is a great way to add carbonation and lighten up the nature of the drink. There were a lot of directions I could go, but I ended up deciding to add some richness while playing upon the “head” that the beer gives to the cocktail.  One egg white later, the South of the Border Fizz is born!

Thanks, and Back to you, Brian!
