Fancy, Refreshing Beer Cocktail
Beer “cocktail”! What?!
Sounds funny, but this beverage is so refreshing and thirst-quenching!
Just what you all need to sip on while you’re rooting for your favorite team this Sunday . . .
I enjoy beer. I really do.
But sometimes I just want to get fancy.
Know what I’m talking about?
Well, this is the perfect cocktail for fancy beer drinking.
Start with a little rum, add some fresh citrus juices and simple syrup. Then top it all off with ice cold beer.
Stick a straw in it and you are good to go!
I’ve tried this cocktail with lemon juice and also with lime juice.
Both are very good — the lime is a bit sweeter, but I wouldn’t turn either of them down!
