Spike Your National Beer Day Celebration With A Spirit

Nicole Barylski

Brew enthusiasts get ready because National Beer Day is Thursday, April 7th. If you want to switch it up this year and shy away from your normal pint, mix up one of these spiked cocktails. And remember, if you didn't get to try enough options on the 7th, the weekend's right around the corner.

 • 1 part frozen Limeade
