HOPSTER COLLINS
BY ED HUGHES
Our very own Ed Hughes, Sharp’s beer sommelier extraordinaire, shares his recipe for a cracking craft cocktail. Taking the classic Tom Collins, this beer infused alternative calls for Tarquin’s The Hopster Gin, our collaboration with Southwestern Distillery. The use of specific hops lifts the citrus of both the lime and beer in this taste-of-Cornwall cocktail and switching the soda water for Offshore Pilsner completes the hoppy tones. Serve in champagne flutes with a twist of lemon and wow guests with this dazzling party starter. If this recipe has you fired up to learn more about brilliant beer recipes and pairings, then you’re going to love the new Sharp’s cookbook, Just Add Beer. It’s available to order, so bag yourself a copy now.
