Whiskey and Gingerbread Porter Sour

by James Stevenson

What better way to celebrate any occasion than with a whiskey and beer cocktail? The porter used in this cocktail is from Russell Brewing Company out of Strawberry Hill, Surrey, British Columbia. The Black Death Porter is an English Porter with a 6.5% ABV and 53 IBU. This particular beer was created as part of Russell’s brew master series, which explores new styles of beers. Not only does it pack a punch with rich and roasted malty flavors the aroma of the hops really draws in the drinker. Russell’s says ” High in alcohol and may result in excessive laughter or brutal honesty-be warned. This beer combined with bourbon will make your day bright especially if it brings excessive fun and laughter.
