It’s the weekend! Today I looked onto this Instagram, been doing Instagram for a 2 weeks now, finding it to be kind of cool. Yes, I know what you are thinking, old news, where have I been. I dropped off from friends and just everything, just wanted a private life for the years. Now since people tend to be social stalkers, watch what you do, but won’t comment or say something to you. I find that strange in a way, and don t necessarily like it. On Instagram there are way more engaging people, I felt it’s not a stalker thing, just a community sharing cool pictures. Well maybe there is stalks and Me just not aware, but that’s my 2 cents….Let’s proceed to the beer.
Making the Wheat Beer mixed drink?
- Grab a pot of water and bring to a boil
- Grab yourself a pair of tongs, you are going to blanch your apricot. Stir around for 8 to 10 seconds pull out but you’re not going to shock it in ice water. This is my hack vs. 30 seconds or more.
- Peel off the skin, deseed and throw in the blender
- You are going put your blueberries in the blender with a little bit of beer
- Blend until smooth or Chucky however you feel
- Pour in the fruit in a glass, and then add your beer, finish with garnish
Enjoy your weekend or night with this drink.
The reason behind you are taking off the peel of the apricot is that it’s bitter and the added texture to the beer, won’t be pleasant feeling to the tongue.
Hack for blanching- blanch in for 10 seconds and pull out, it will continue to cook and give you the perfect branch, throwing it in ice water is another way. This is just what I like to do.
Don’t put all the beer in the blender it will lose the carbonation. When blending you’re only going to add a little bit just to give it traction to break down and puree correctly. Because come on, who wants a flat beer.
Question for you
