#HappySummerBeer cocktail recipes series: Black Label Fusion
Friday, December 20th, 2013
The Black Label Fusion combines two complementary beers with a blend of aromatic herbs, the perfect antidote to the heat of Summer! Full-bodied Black Label is a great complement to the bracingly crisp taste of Redd’s apple ale. Basil, ginger, thyme and bitters infused with sugar syrup make this a refreshingly fragrant beer cocktail.
Serve on a sweltering afternoon to escape the heat!
