This recipe originally appeared in Beer Tails.
Inspired by the French 75, but using a Pennsylvania microbrew in place of Champagne.
• 1 oz. Bluecoat gin
• 1 oz. fresh lime juice
• 1 oz. ginger simple syrup
• 6 oz. Victory Prima Pils
Combine gin, lime juice, and ginger simple syrup in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a pilsner glass.
Top with beer.
For ginger simple syrup: Cut 1/2 lb. ginger against the grain into 1/4" slices. Combine with 1 pt. simple syrup in a blender and puree. Separate pulp from syrup, using a fine mesh strainer. Makes 1 pt. syrup, enough for 16 cocktails.
