Beer, Bourbon, & BBQ Cocktail Recipe created by


Beer Bourbon BBQ Cocktail



– Bourbon, we used Maker’s Mark

– Evan Williams Honey Reserve or Wild Turkey American Honey

– 1 bottle of Hefeweizen beer

– Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse Barbecue Sauce (for the “BBQ Water”)

– 1 Orange

For the BBQ Water

Combine a full bottle 19 oz of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse Barbecue Sauce with equal part of steaming hot water in mixing bowl.

Whisk until incorporated. Let sit to cool or refrigerate.

How to make the cocktail

Combine 2 oz. of your favorite Bourbon, 1 oz. honey-infused Bourbon, and a 1/4 oz. of BBQ Water and squeeze of a quarter of an orange in cocktail shaker and shake over ice.

Strain and pour into martini glass. Dry shake a fourth of a bottle of Hefeweizen beer (hold tight to shaker as carbonation may cause shaker to explode). Spoon beer foam over top of the cocktail to garnish.


We originally invented this cocktail to celebrate the Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival in Manhattan where Tom Fischer often appears to make presentations and hosts tastings.

Special thanks to our Mixologist Stephen Dennison.

Thanks to Dave Allen of Varanese Restaurant, Louisville, Kentucky.
