Beer is an obvious choice for Shavuot. It has barley and wheat, and it’s made even better in this fun, summery cocktail. Choose any neutral or citrusy IPA-style beer — you won’t need too much, just a few ounces, so don’t be afraid to get a premium beer.
- 1 ounce gin
- 1 ounce lemon juice
- ½ ounce simple syrup (50 percent water, 50 percent sugar, boiled together)
- 3 ounces IPA beer
- Sprig of mint
Shake all the ingredients except the beer and the mint together with ice and pour into a rocks glass with a few ice cubes. Slowly add the beer, and garnish with the sprig of mint.
