The Coney Island Strongman

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Some mixologists have decided they need a break from esoteric spirits and science-lab techniques; instead, they're finding inspiration in the kinds of lowbrow ingredients sold at the local 7-Eleven. At Boston's Coppa, co-owner Courtney Bissonnette combines green and yellow chartreuse with Miller High Life to make her supersize Coney Island Strongman. "We serve it in a large beer stein with a big, muscular arm as the handle. It's ridiculous, but people love it," she says.

  1. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  2. 7 ounces lager, such as Miller High Life
  3. 1 ounce green Chartreuse
  4. 1 ounce yellow Chartreuse
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the yellow and green Chartreuse and the lemon juice. Shake well and strain into a tall glass. Top with the beer and serve.
