How to Make a Shipwrecker

by Toby Aird


  • Chambord
  • Aperol
  • Orange juice
  • Cherry heering
  • Light, hoppy ale
  • Raspberries
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    For this ale based cocktail we'll start by adding 25ml (1oz) of Chambord to a cocktail shaker.

    Step 2

    Followed by 12.5ml (1/2oz) Cointreau, or triple sec

    Step 3

    To sweeten it slightly and add to the fruit base we're also going to need 12.5ml (1/2oz) of Cherry Heering liqueur

    Step 4

    Throw in 6 whole raspberries and 15ml (3/4oz) of fresh orange juice.

    Step 5

    And 20ml (3/4oz) of Aperol with a dash of sugar syrup. Give it a good shake, breaking up the fruit and combining the liquid ingredients.

    Step 6

    Single strain into a beer glass of your choice packed full of ice.

    Step 7

    Top with the ale you have chosen for your cocktail.

    Step 8

    I've used keg Shipyard for its light citrus and hoppy flavours.

    Step 9

    Muddle briefly with a bar spoon and then garnish appropriately.

    Step 10

    There you have your Shipwrecker cocktail! I chose this name due to the addition of shipyard ale and it's high ABV. Light fruity flavours that pack one hell of a punch.
