This week's Friday Happy Hour quaff comes to us from Anne Becerra of New York City's Taproom 307. And as befits both the craft beer centric venue and creator, it's a beer cocktail. Becerra was the first woman in New York City to become a Certified Cicerone — or beer sommelier — and has worked at the helm of the biggest beer bars in Manhattan for the last six years, including Taproom 307, Blind Tiger, The Ginger Man, and The Pony Bar. This cocktail combines sweet bourbon and cherry liqueur, bitter chocolate bitters, and roasty Schwarzbier. Meet the Urban Legend.
1 oz Bourbon
1/2 oz cherry liqueur
