Das Boot – A Citrusy Beer and Champagne Cocktail

I’ve been really inspired by all the interesting beer cocktails around Insta lately and decided to whip up something hoppy, citrusy, and oh so bittersweet. A double IPA, some grapefruit juice, Campari, and champagne, and you have one surprisingly delicious boot full of booze.


  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • 1 oz grapefruit juice, strained
  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 3 oz champagne / dry sparkling wine
  • Sam Adams Rebel Rouser double IPA

Add first four ingredients and ice to a cocktail shaker, shake until chilled. Strain into tall chilled glass, add champagne, top with beer. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.
