DudeFood Tuesday: 3 supereasy to make cocktails with beer

Beer cocktail with corona | insimoneskitchen.comA good glass of wine… still isn’t a glass of beer. A saying which any rightful dude knows by heart.
Sure, I do enjoy a nice glass of red wine every now an then, but when I hit the city with my buddies I still think a nice beer(s!) is the best drink.
I don’t know why it is that I prefer to drink a beer over a wine. Maybe because you can hold a glass of beer in a more manly way? For I still don’t know how to handle a wineglass in a proper yet macho way. If you do,, please tell me…

Strawberry beer cocktail | insimoneskitchen.comBeer is essential in the Dude Food kitchen; both as an ingredient in a lot of recipes and as a refreshing drink while you are cooking.
That’s the main reason this yellow hero turns up a lot in the Dude Food Tuesday blogs.
But now it’s time to put every Dudes friend, the BEER, in a spotlight of its own. After all he deserves a place in his own right.
So today we are making cocktails with.. beer!

To get things straight: I’m not talking about cocktail in which you need to add 1.25 grams of sugar and 2,33 drops of lime juice. Not the kind of cocktails which are shaken by those slick boys with no more than three pubic hairs on their chins. The kind of boys who look at your Misses over a triangular glass and when they smile slyly, the Misses almost faints from desire.

Biercocktails-21The worst thing with those Shaker boys is when they have poured all the lemonade and booze in a shaker and they start doing their ritual ‘cocktail shake dance’.
That dance in which they shake their touchies more than their drinks and they want to let everybody know that it’s a serious profession to shake alcohol.
Looks more like they are doing a mating dance with the one and only ash vase of Venus above their heads.
Those kid of drinks aren’t the Dude cocktails I was thinking of.

Biercocktails-38Nope, in the Dude Food kitchen we don’t make cocktails which are made by men who even have a hair parting in their pubic hair. Here we make cocktails for men with balls. A firm glass in your hands with a drink that makes you say: “My, that’s special. And I still taste the beer!”
Easy to make cocktails which you can serve during a barbecue without giving in on Dudiness.
And when you make these cocktails, don’t call yourself a beerista or something. Just make the drink and rub your beerbelly when the guests are enjoying these delicious drinks.

I give you two tried and tested cocktails with beer (though I don’t know who invented them I give them proper cudos) and one beercocktail I invented myself.
