Beverage Rules, Shaken & Stirred – August 1, 2007

The rules of the bar inform the prevailing ideas about what kinds of drinks may be served on the rocks. But judging by city menus, mixologists are increasingly breaking taboos — pouring Champagne, port, and beer over ice, in an effort to serve up refreshing summer drinks.

Beer on the rocks? What brand of madness is this?

Though many beer fanatics would scoff at the idea of diluting a true brew with any additives, there’s also a Mexican cocktail that brings together beer, lime juice and ice. “The Michelada — three parts beer, one part lime juice, with ice and a salt rim — is a very refreshing drink, popular on the beaches of Mexico,” a chef and owner of the Modern Mexican restaurant group, Richard Sandoval, said. “You can drink a lot without getting drunk.”

No shit, Sherlockito. But just thinking about that concoction (“SALT?!”) makes drinking my own piss seem like a better waste of money and time. (And considering my average blood/alcohol level, probably offers a better buzz.)
