Craft Irish whiskey meets tropical IPA in this cocktail, created by Sam Ruppert at Chicago brewery DryHop. The balanced sipper gets sweetness and color from Heering cherry liqueur and demerara sugar syrup. The recipe calls for DryHop’s Shark Meets Hipster tropical wheat IPA, but any similar style of IPA will do. To take it up a smoky notch, add a few spritzes of peaty Laphroaig whisky mist to the final product.
