The Gringo (From Portland)

Recently back from a sweltering NYC. Does that call for a frosty beer? Or a cold glass of juice? Maybe a shot of tequila? How about all three?
1 12 oz Blanco tequila, Don Julio Blanco
12 oz Elderflower liqueur, St. Germain
1 oz Grapefruit juice
2 oz Pale Ale (to top)
1 twst Grapefruit peel
Shake tequila, elderflower, and grapefruit with ice. Strain over fresh ice. Top off with pale ale. Serve in a salt-rimmed glass with a grapefruit twist.

Interesting. Was hoping for

Interesting. Was hoping for some guidance on what pale ale to use, but opted for a Red Hook Audible Ale we had in the fridge. It's decently balanced and i can taste each and every one of the ingredients. I was worried the beer would over power the other ingredients, but it blended well. Don't know if I'd go out of my way to make it again, but it was enjoyable.
