A spicy beer-based thirst-quencher…
Ginger beer, spiced rum, and Tabasco sauce add plenty of warmth to the beer-based Hellfire cocktail. It’s a spiced (and lightly spicy) thirst-quencher cocktail. Serve it like a beer or try it over ice (in a big beer or pint glass) if you prefer something more cocktail-like.
If you like things spicy, don’t be afraid of an extra dash or two of Tabasco, too. There’s a lot of beer here, so a dash or two only provides a tickle of heat.
- 1 Pilsner Urquell or another pilsner beer (Amstel works, as does Heineken)
- 1 ounce spiced rum
- 1 ounce ginger beer
- 2 dashes Tabasco Sauce
- 1/4 lime
Fill a beer glass with ice (optional, if you prefer the cocktail over ice), then squeeze the lime juice from the lime quarter into the glass.
Add the spiced rum, ginger beer, and Tabasco sauce - lightly stir to combine.
Slowly pour in the beer to the glass, lightly stirring at the beginning to combine all the ingredients. Serve with an additional lime wedge.
