Cocktail Hour: Bump Up Your Beer

Assuming the rain doesn't cancel it, today is the annual Congressional Baseball game here in Washington, D.C. If you've never heard of this event, Members of Congress get together and put any partisan sqwable aside to fight over what really counts, a win on the baseball diamond. For those of you in DC or if your even remotely political you need to get your butt down to Nationals Park tonight. Tickets are $10 and it's general seating, get them here!

Anyways, since this is a night where the Washington elite kick their feet up and relax, I figured a little cocktail hour is in order? Tell me what goes better with baseball than a cold beer? Besides a hot dog or a little shake shack? Well this cocktail is perfection for summer and the ingredients are pretty darn inexpensive, so you've got to love that!

I actually discovered this drink at PS 7 when it was still open, but alas, the drink lives on with us! 

take me out to the ballgame


  • 5 oz light lager beer (i.e. Bud Light, Miller Light, PBR, etc.)
  • 1 oz Ginger Liqueur
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 Tbsp fresh ginger thinly sliced (for garnish)
  • Ice

Simply combine the ginger liqueur, beer and lemon juice in a tall glass. Add the ice and garnish with ginger. Enjoy.

It seriously couldn't be much simpler than that folks? Let me know if you try it! Happy Thursday!
