INSPIRATION:

Guests are always asking for something light and refreshing. Our cocktail list is corporate driven and is always a season behind with respect to guest needs. I decided to gather some ingredients from the kitchen that I felt could help create a refreshing drink.

Ginger beer is something that I enjoy using, so it made sense to use it here. Virginia summers are warm and humid. This drink tends to make your forget all about that.
