Crafted at The Public House by Evans Brewing | Fullerton, Calif.

The Chocolatte Cordial was created as a slightly rich after dinner drink that could easily replace or accompany dessert. A base of Bulleit Bourbon provides a touch of heat and spice, while two decadent liqueurs—Cherry Heering and amaretto—offer balance with hints of cherry and candied almond. Float a few ounces of Chocolatte Porter by Evans Brewing on top, and the result is a sweetly balanced yet indulgent beer cocktail.

1 1/2 oz Evans Brewing Co. Chocolatte Porter (or another roasty Porter like Rogue Ales Mocha Porter or Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter)
1 oz Bulleit Bourbon
1/2 oz Luxardo amaretto
1/2 oz Cherry Heering
Luxardo cherry for garnish

Combine spirits in shaker, add ice and shake. Strain over ice into a stemless wine or collins glass. Float beer over top and garnish with cherry.
