Beer Store expert tries to stretch your tastebuds
Dick Loek, Torstar News
The snow is starting to fall and maybe stay, and it’s time to think about that all-important winter holiday. Have you stocked up on beer, wine, champagne, whisky, spirits or otherwise? We have a few suggestions that might work for you in this week’s Booze, er, Food section.
Over the course of the next three weeks, Metro’s Food section will take on holiday themes. Beer, Wine And Liquor this week, Anything But Turkey For Dinner next Thursday, and Chocolate on Dec. 21.
Today’s section will include:
- My column on throwing a beer party for women (a good starter for anybody, really).
Slice of honey dew
Pour both liquids half and half into a glass. Add honey dew on side (Warning: lemon’s acidity kills a beer’s head).
Vanilla or toffee ice cream
Crumbled flakes of chocolate
Throw a scoop of ice cream into a martini glass. Pour Guinness over it. Top with chocolate flakes and berries.
3-4 oz. of lager/pilsner
Pour clamato and beer into a tall glass with salt rim. Add a few drops of worcestershire sauce, celery, and slice of lemon. Salt and pepper to taste.
