Scoff as you will, but my unpopular opinion is that Miller High Life is the best macro lager out there. I couldn’t tell you why, other than it always seems to be there when I need it. So imagine my surprise yesterday when my buddy says he knows a fantastic MHL cocktail that will WOW me. I was skeptical till I tried it, and now I must share it with all of you.
This cocktail is known affectionately as the Spaghett. Believed to have originated in Baltimore, it’s super simple, super refreshing, and you can mix it to your preference. All you need is: Miller High Life, Aperol, and lemon juice.
If you aren’t familiar with Aperol, it’s an Italian version of bitters made with gentian, rhubarb, and cinchona.
- Pop your Miller, and take a decent sized mouthful out (aka drink it)
- Add equal parts Aperol and Lemon Juice
It’s literally that simple!
