3 Smoked Beer Cocktails

First of all, what is smoked beer? It’s like a liquid grill. The flavour comes from the malted barley dried over an open flame. It does take some time to adjust to the taste but once you get it, it’s delicious!

We made 3 Smokey cocktails  to get you started in this chapter. 

Let’s get to it.
