Sprecher Brewing Company shows how to make its best cocktails

A Wisconsin brewing and craft soda company joined KARE11 on Saturday to show how people use their sodas to make unique cocktails.

MINNEAPOLIS — As the coronavirus pandemic is about to enter its third year, more and more people are getting into making specialty cocktails. A Wisconsin brewing and craft soda company joined KARE11 on Saturday to show how people use their sodas to make unique cocktails.

Milwaukee-based Sprecher Brewing, Co. has seen huge growth in sales of its craft sodas and root beer as more people pay more attention to how they make their specialty drinks and cocktails. .

The brewery started 36 years ago in Milwaukee as a craft brewery, but its founder, Randy Sprecher, started making craft root beer for family tours of his brewery. Since then, they have become one of the tastiest root beers in the country, according to The New York Times.

Tim Cigelske, the brewery’s communications director, told KARE11 on Saturday that mixing cocktails with their craft sodas can be as simple as combining their root beer and bourbon.

Bourbon and Root Beer

  • cocktail glass
  • Ice
  • Pour a glass of bourbon (Maker’s Mark or your favorite brand)
  • Fill the rest of the glass with Sprecher Root Beer

Cream soda cocktail

  • 1 glass of vodka
  • 4 oz Sprecher cream soda
  • Pomegranate touch
  • Garnish with maraschino cherries (optional)
  • Fill a glass with ice cubes and pour the vodka shot into it.
  • Add the cream soda and a splash of grenadine. Mix and add maraschino cherries for garnish if desired.
