Beer-tails are really easy to make, says Michael Przybyl, the beverage manager at David’s Club at the Hilton Orlando. They maintain their effervescence when they’re gently stirred rather than vigorously shaken. “Beer has become very sophisticated and is the perfect base for a cocktail,” he says. “Besides, why should liquor have all the fun in a cocktail?” Short answer: It shouldn’t.
