Take your cocktail up a notch with this unique twist on ale!
I thought it was only fair for those beer lovers out there to give you an option too since I shared that twist on the Sparkling Mimosa. Plus, this Raspberry Ale just so happens to be one of the top favorites of Jordan Catapano, owner of This Girl Walks Into a Bar!
Before we get to the goods, I wanted to share with you a wonderful conversation I had with Jordan about the past year and where her business has grown. I don’t know about you, but with the close of 2015 I like to reflect to see where I’ve grown. I’ll save those words of wisdom for another day and instead give you a look at how the ladies behind This Girl Walks Into a Bar overcame personal struggles to launch their empire this year.
Words of Wisdom from Jordan Catapano, Cocktail Queen~
What are you most proud of when looking back on the year of 2015? We are most proud of pulling off this entire book tour. It required a tremendous amount of planning and never would have happened without our wonderful friends at BevMo! and Pottery Barn. If someone would have told us five years ago that we’d be traveling up and down the West Coast to promote our third book, we would have laughed. It’s exciting to have accomplished this, and it’s equally exciting that it’s over!
- 2 1/2 oz vodka
- 1 1/2 oz lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
- 1 oz raspberry simple syrup
- 12 oz beer
- raspberry to garnish
- In a martini shaker, mix vodka, lemon juice, hot sauce, and simple syrup with ice. Shake to chill, then strain into glass. Slowly add beer. Garnish with raspberries and serve!

This drink looks delicious even though I’m personally not a beer drinker! I’m most grateful for the health of my family and the fact that we are all safe and well in this time of war and strife. And of course I’m thankful for my great network of friends through social media and the blogging world – you especially have been such a supporter of my work and it doesn’t go unnoticed. Xo

:), looks like us RDs are all sans beer- test though, does Mr. Nutritioulicious like beer? If so, pretty sure Mr Spicy, Mr CEO & him can have their ale together lol!
Very well said- and thank you my dear! I too am so grateful for this network, it’s amazing how much my blogging relationships mean to me! XOXO and best wishes for a fantastic 2016!

Inspiring interview Liz! Life always seems to have a way of putting what’s most important to us in to perspective. I will say I am most grateful for the health of my parents this year, and the fact that we got to take our big family trip together with everyone staying healthy 🙂 Although I’m not much of a beer drinker, this looks absolutely refreshing and delicious!
Elizabeth Shaw says
I am so glad you got to go on that trip! Not only did it sound fabulous, I am certain it is something you and your kids will always remember! I love that! I too am not a big beer drinker, but for those Mr. Spicys/Mr Ceos out there, I had to throw them a bone lol! Wine Wednesday soon?!
