Light, fizzy Corona and earthy whiskey flavor combinations make this beer cocktail alarmingly easy to drink.
For this drink, I knew we didn’t want to go the easy route and just go with a Beer-rita (or Coron-rita, or whatever they’re calling those things these days).
Starting with Corona, I thought, “OK, this usually has lime. We’re going to need some citrus. What else has citrus?”
The choice was clear: the Whisky Sour — well, the Whisky Sour, modified and tweaked. Then turn it into a Collins by adding fizz, but instead of club soda fizz, we get that fizz from a Corona!
That’s just what we did, starting with our whisky (fine, technically we went bourbon) base, adding a splash of sweet, some lemon, some lime and finished off with beer.
How does it taste? Honestly, we were both shocked with how refreshing it is. Beyond just refreshing, it’s alarmingly easy to drink a few too many of these. The lightness of the Corona compliments the earthiness of the whisky, while the lemon and lime tie them all together in a flavorful sensation.
