Chef's Notes

  7. This drink starts out with a wallop then grows on you! It's delicious --as my friend Ann said "a good sipping cocktail." And such an attractive drink too!
  8. I used a good local beer in this cocktail, Appalachian Ginger Beer. One of the best goshdarn cocktails I've had in a LONG time. This might just be my new favorite drinks.
  9. Simple yet delicious!
