Boilermaker for the Win!

by boozeinprettycups

It’s been a while ladies and gentletenders, but I’m pleased to say that once again the pretty cups shall run over with delicious and delightful libations.

For the last few years I’ve been caught up in the game so to speak and have decided to reignite this little blog as an outlet for some of my less commercial ideas and interests.

My passion is quite simply great drinks and I would love to be able to share a little of what that means to me with you.

I’ve got a long list of cool stuff I want to talk about, yet as always one must start somewhere….


The humble boilermaker is to me a classic. Although not a cocktail as such it does manage to sling two very different beverages into the mouth simultaneously.

Coopers Green needs no cup, its packaging its timeless and more than pretty enough for the purposes of this experiment. While the crisp yeastieness of this Scotto favourite provides a perfect foil for dozens of whiskies, the combination here with it’s Melbourne based brethren Starward lifts the palate to a higher plane.

Short and stout is the name of the game here as far as silica based drink-ware goes. Ideally you should be able to leave one hand free for a variety of nefarious purposes while consuming! Find yourself a new old favourite and then relax into this like that old couch on your front veranda.
