This semester has unveiled a new Sunday night tradition: import night at the Cellar Restaurant. Its collection of worldly brews is half off, which is a great opportunity to try new labels. After a friend recommended Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer last week, at least half of our table ordered it for their first round. Though Crabbie’s is delicious on its own, the beer also makes for a refreshing mixer. I recommend this crisp and bubbling brew for this week’s drink recipe, the Beer Cup Punch. Since it is a punch recipe, it yields more than one serving. It could be a good excuse to host a group study break during the hectic week.
1 1/2 ounces gin
1 bottle lager
1 bottle ginger beer (Crabbie’s recommended)
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1 splash of soda water
1. Pour the ingredients in a bowl or pitcher with ice and stir them lightly.
2. Garnish it with a sprig of mint and a slice of cucumber.
3. Serve and enjoy.
