Tried this: A Broadway

Cranberry broadwayI subscribe to a lot of cooking magazines. Duh. I absolutely love cooking, eating and food photography. I am always up for trying something new and in this past month's edition of Everyday with Rachel Ray there was this drink called a Broadway that I had never heard of before. I got online to do a bit more research and sure enough, the internet agrees, a Broadway is a mixed beer drink. Yep, mixed beer. Different, huh? The basic idea is that you mix cola and beer together. If this conjures up images of pouring a Mickey's into a tall glass of Mount Dew, well, just stop right there. (!!!!!) It can actually be quite refreshing, think ginger ale added to a rich amber beer.How to make a broadwayI decided to try it out. I wanted to make something a little seasonal, so I created a simple cranberry soda to pair with my beer. Here's how:

In a pot boil together 1 cup water, 3/4 cup sugar and 1 cup chopped cranberries for 5-6 minutes. Be sure to stir so the sugar dissolves. Strain out the cranberry pieces and combine this syrup with club soda. You can adjust how much based on how sweet you want your drink. Then combine with beer.BroadwayJust something different. I sort of loved how foamy this was. I also tried the cranberry soda on its own and that was really fun too. I always love cranberries in the fall. Try something new this weekend! xo. Emma
