Spring Beer Cocktail

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

Now that Spring freshness is in the air, you need a crisp drink to match!

This Spring Beer Cocktail recipe is a grown-up take on the infamous college punch (a handle of cheap vodka + 30-pack of light beer + tub of lemonade powder). I’ve seen it called many names before, from Skippy, to Jungle Juice, to Summer Beer. Some girls I was friends with in college used pink lemonade and called it by…another name. ;-)

This adult version uses real lemons, a hint of ginger, and a classy pilsner, and is sweetened with agave nectar.

Make sure to use a microplane on the ginger so you don’t end up with chunks in your drink.

Mint on top makes it look so tasty! It also adds a nice herbal freshness to the drink as you mix it in.
