My hubby would love to try that. He loves tasting all kinds of beer. I will have to show him that. I am scared of dark beer for some reason. Champaign is a great idea though!!!

A margarita on the rocks with salt and you add a shot of amaretto, yum, I love those in the summer. Of course it's best top shelf with Disarrono Amaretto.
