Amber’s Flip


One of my very best friends is named Amber, a women whom I not only look up to but absolutely adore. Since this cocktail is made with a Amber ale, I thought ‘Amber’s Flip’ was an appropriate name.

  • 1.5 oz Bulliet Bourbon
  • 1 oz Amber syrup
  • 3 oz Shiner Hefeweizen Beer
  • .5 oz Fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Whole egg
  • A pinch of cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in a shaker except the cinnamon. Hard shake for one minute. Add ice, shake hard again for a minute. Fine strain into a collins glass. Garnish with a pinch of cinnamon. Enjoy.

Amber Syrup

In all honesty I am a little obsessed with this syrup. It’s incredible. The brown sugar takes that sting off the slightly bitter notes in Dos Equis Amber Ale and amplifies the deep butterscotch notes, then adds vanilla, with a hit of malted spice.

Makes one cup

For every bottle of Dos Equis Amber Ale add 1/3 cup brown derma sugar, a vanilla bean and a pinch of nutmeg. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring up to a boil for one minute. Turn heat down and let simmer for ten minutes. Fine strain into an airtight container.
