Have you noticed how popular beer mixers & beer cocktails have become recently? One restaurant near us has a fantastic variety on their menu of beer cocktails. The one I'm sharing here became a favorite of mine the first time I tried it last summer - it is the perfect cocktail to enjoy on a warm summer day.
Big thanks to sister who keeps the DKU Lakehouse fully stocked with St. Germain and provided it for this cocktail. Have you tried it? It is a delicious elderflower liquor that's easy to use in so many different cocktails.
The Perfect Summer Beer Cocktail
For each cocktail, you will need:
- 1 bottle of Stella Artois Beer
- 1 shot of St. Germain
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
- lemon wedge, for garnish
Add lemon juice and St Germain to glass; pour Stella into glass. Use a cocktail stir stick to gently stir and combine. Add lemon wedge for garnish to the side of the glass. Now, sit back and enjoy. Cheers!
I couldn't resist including a photo of the begonia I have in our screen porch. Isn't it gorgeous?
