Bul's Eye!

Posted on September 6, 2011 at 10:00 PM




Some people are beer purists. Each beer type has a special glass. The idea of putting a lemon in anything but a Hefeweizen is tantamount to treason. Confusing with an IPA with an ESB is as crazy as saying you have ESP in your IPO.

 

 

To you I say bul! No, not bull. Bul! As in the refreshing beverage sipped by Cubans that incorporates beer, ginger ale, and lime juice. Never heard of it? Never fear, I’ll show you how…

 

 

You’ll need four limes, 1 – 12 oz can of light beer, 1 – 12 oz can of ginger ale, 1 – 2 tablespoons of sugar, and ice.

 

 

Juice enough limes to make 1/3 cup. You’ll need about 3 limes for this. (Hints: Nuking your limes for 5-10 seconds will help get the juices flowing. A citrus reamer will make quick work of the juicing.) Thinly slice the remaining lime for garnish.

 

 


Pour the lime juice into a pitcher, then add one 12 oz can of your favorite light beer. Make sure the beer is cold!

 


 

And one 12 oz can of chilled ginger ale.

 


 

Add one to two tablespoons of sugar, to taste, and stir it up until the sugar is dissolved. (Superfine or baker’s sugar makes this go faster.)

 


 

Serve it over ice and add a lime slice garnish.

 

 

This is the perfect beverage to enjoy with a Cubano, a toasted Cuban sandwich. Stay tuned for that recipe next week!
