Marcus Johnson's Sippy-Go-Naked

​Yesterday we met Marcus Johnson, who tends bar at Four Peaks in both Tempe and Scottsdale. Today he shares with us the recipe for the Sippy-Go-Naked, a creation of Four Peaks' brewers that's become popular with people in the know.

"It started out as a drink that was just known among the brewers, but they told enough people that now I'll have customers come over and ask for them," Johnson says. " You're kind of surprised to hear that name from someone who's not a brewer, but it's also nice to see the drink is slowly making its way up."

Bartenders also often make another beer cocktail called Sippy-Go-Night-Night, which is Stoli, lemonade and framboise. Johnson says the brewers never told him exactly where they got the names from, so we're left to guess what kind of beer-fueled shenanigans inspired it.

Get the recipe after the jump.

The ingredients:
2 ounces vodka
2 ounces lemonade
Four Peaks Arizona Peach to fill

How to make it:
In an ice-filled shaker pint, pour in the vodka and lemonade. Stir well, then fill with Arizona Peach. Stir again, sip and, you know, go naked.

I'm down with any drink that includes the word naked. (Sorry! A bit juvenile).

These are delicious, very dangerous drinks. I'll bet it's even better with the peach ale!

It's also been around for decades. I've seen variations on the name including Sip and Go Naked, Skip and Go Naked, Hop Skip and Go Naked, and Strip and Go Naked. The last one is how it was known at Islands, a long defunct Phoenix tiki bar, in the 1960s. Back then it used both gin and vodka. I think it's better with all vodka.
