I thought it would be fun to start off my week of Fall festive and/or Thanksgiving recipes with a delicious beer recipe! This fruit (and cinnamon) infused beer is perfect for this time of year and will make the guys and gals at the party pretty darn happy.
Infusing your beer using your french press just brings out the flavors a little more and really gives it a nice and festive kick. You can use other fruits or a different beer if you'd like, this recipe isn't restricted to what I'm using...get creative.
New Belgium Accumulation (their new winter ale, it's yummy)
Squeeze an orange slice into your french press and then drop the slice into the bottom of the press. Slit an apple slice a few times, so that the flavor can get out, and put it in the bottom of the press along with the cinnamon stick.
Pour your beer into the french press and put the lid on (without pressing down) for 4 minutes. Once your time is up, plunge the press and make sure to gently push down so that you get as much of the fruit juices out as you can. Pour the beer into a glass of your choice and enjoy!
Cheers! These are super cute and festive served in a mason jar with a fresh apple slice thrown in.
Will you try a fruit infused beer at your holiday party or Thanksgiving dinner?
