The Green Devil boosts the powerful Belgian beer Duvel with juniper-forward London Dry gin and a rinse of aromatic absinthe. In Cocktails on Tap, the vast rangeof today's beers--from basic lagers to roasty stouts and sour Belgian ales--is explored and tapped as a resource for making an innovative and delicious array of cocktails.
