#HappySummerBeer cocktail recipes series Milk Stout MedleyIn the second post of our  #HappySummerBeer cocktail series we’ll show you how to create the delectable Milk Stout Medley, perfect for Summer.

Beer cocktails are the playful next step of the craft beer movement. Traditional beers are being used in unconventional ways, creatively pushing the boundaries while at the same time pleasing the palate. Beautifully shaken and stirred, these are sophisticated concoctions of fresh fruit, herbs, spices, juices and syrups combined with quality beer. The result is a sophisticated flavour sensation. The Milk Stout Medley is a combination of Castle Milk Stout and Brutal Fruit Cranberry, perfectly suited for a sunny afternoon spent in lazy decadence. The fruitiness of the cranberry is balanced by the smooth rich stout flavours, brought together with a touch of spice.
