An icy beer granita is the base for this grown-up slushie. If you like your drinks sweeter, go for a high-wheat percentage bourbon; if you like them spicier, go with a high-rye percentage bourbon. Either way, it goes down smooth.

Ingredients

Directions

Pour the beers into an 8-by-8-inch baking dish. Freeze until slushy, whisking every 30 minutes, for about 4 hours. Meanwhile, put the cherries in a small bowl and pour the orange liqueur over. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. 

For each cocktail, spoon about 1 cup beer slush into a rocks glass. Pour 1 3/4 ounces sweet vermouth, 1 1/2 ounces bourbon and 3 dashes bitters into a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, shake and strain over the slush in the glass. Garnish with 2 liqueur-soaked cherries. Serve immediately.
