This weekend, our town happens to host one of the largest bike festivals in the nation – infusing every nook and cranny with a rumbling energy. Bikes Blues and Barbecue just seems to call for beer – and this Ginger Beer cocktail is what we are sipping tonight in appreciation of all the people involved in the event – whether a band member, participant, volunteer, restaurant or organizer.
2 teaspoons ginger juice
2 (12 ounce) bottles of amber beer, chilled
4 cups ginger beer, chilled
1/2 cup dark rum
Stir together ginger juice, beer, ginger beer and rum. Pour mixture into pilsner glasses and garnish each with a cherry.
