Beer Mojito (with Berliner Weisse)
The classic mojito cocktail gets a flavor boost from highly effervescent Berliner Weisse style sour wheat ale.
Servings: 1 cocktail
- 10 fresh mint leaves, a sprig for garnish
- 2 oz white rum
- 1 squeeze lime juice, lime wedges for garnish
- 2 tbsp simple syrup
- 2 cups ice (for the shaker and then to place in serving glass, approximately)
- 12 oz Berliner Weisse style ale (or Gose) (may not use up all of it)
In a cocktail shaker add the mint leaves, rum, squeeze of lime juice and simple syrup. Press them with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon to release the aromas and flavors of the mint.
Add a cup of ice, place the shaker's lid and shake vigorously for up to 15 seconds.
Fill a glass with ice, strain the cocktail over it and fill with Berliner Weisse beer. Garnish with lime wedges and mint.
