Collinwood Cocktails: The Victoria Winters

The latest Collinwood Cocktail comes to us from Tamara, who brings us the Victoria Winters Shandy.

Like the Burke Devlin, the Vicky Winters Shandy is a beer cocktail. It's a simple recipe, and Tamara has promised to brew her own pale ale to make an "authentic" VWS, but here's how to make your own at home:

Ice cold pale ale
2 splashes of cranberry juice,
A drop of grenadine

I made my own this afternoon using Ocean Spray cranberry/blueberry drink, and a Shock Top IPA. I might have gotten a little carried away with the grenadine, which gave my drink that not-so-subtle fruit juice color. But when you're getting drunk in the drawing room, who cares what color it is?

Meanwhile, explore the other drink recipes from The Collinsport Cocktail Recipe Book:
