Gin Soaked Blonde

Gin Soaked Blonde

Nothing's better than a light bodied blonde on a hot summer day, glistening in the sun with condensation dripping down the glass. This was a recipe I found a while back which I modified and added juniper berries to. The combo of a light, crisp beer and the floral and slightly bitter aroma of juniper makes for a perfect summer drink. If a gin and tonic had a baby with a maibock, this would be it. Enjoy this with your friends of all hair colors!
