Category: Beer & Wine

Restaurant: Paramour, Wayne, PA

Creator: Steven Gullo, sommelier/beverage director

Inspiration: To tap into the trend of using craft beers in cocktails.

Key Ingredients: Sly Fox Royal Weisse, Chambord, blueberry puree, agave nectar, lemon juice

Price: $13

What the Judges Said: “As a whole, we’re not big fans of wheat beer, but it’s a perfect vehicle for this berrylicious summer cocktail. Gullo made a smart move by putting this beer cocktail in a snifter, which elevates it to a level that can command a $13 price. He takes it over the top by swirling blueberry puree in the foam. It’s an elegant way to bridge the gap between two worlds.”
