You all know I'm a red wine drinker. Rain, Snow, Sunny, 40 below or a 105*- Nothing puts me in a better place than a glass of red wine after a long day in the office or out in the barn. Luckily this week I'm on a work trip in California, where I'm getting my grape intake in the form of liquid. But I also have another favorite drink that fits in with the Valentine color scheme, it's called Red Beer. It can be enjoyed anytime of the year, but I only have it during Denver. I think of it as the National Western Stock Show signature drink. I thought I'd share in case your Valentine isn't a wine drinker, this may be a festive drink you could mix up before heading out for tomorrow's Valentine dinner reservation. So what is it? Red beer is a cross between a beer and a Bloody Mary. I think it's about 3/4 beer (Bud or Coors) and 1/4 Bloody Mary mix, topped with all the fixings. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Top with Tabasco sauce, a little pepper, olives, whatever you'd like and enjoy.
red solo cups! But maybe for tomorrow you want to be a little fancier, it's Valentine's Day after all. Maybe mason jar glasses are more your style.
