Sunday Funday: Making Mulled Beer!

Let’s unleash our inner beer lovers today and make some mulled beer!  Full disclosure here:  I am not a beer drinker or beer lover.  However, after making my mulled wine (Sunday Funday: Making Mulled Wine!), I just had to try mulled beer too! It’s only fair;)

And guess what?!  I LOVE IT!  It obviously does not taste like your regular glass of beer, but really, that is the point here;)

Ingredients

  • Beer (I used this Polish Lezajsk beer – it’s light and most recipes call for light beer)
  • 2 lemon slices
  • 2 wedges of mandarin orange
  • 2 cinammon sticks (1 for garnishing)
  • 3 coin size slices of fresh ginger
  • few pods of cardamom (5-10)
  • few cloves (5-10)
  • black peppercorns

Some people swear by mulled beer and use it as a cold, sore throat and flu aid.  The power of all the spices can sure help! If anything, it will make you feel all warm and cozy inside! Imagine coming in the house after shovelling your driveway and having this fantastic drink!  Mmm….

Enjoy!
