This? It’s a beer cocktail, a beer cooler. It’s two ingredients. And you’re going to need to make a trip to Trader Joe’s to procure the special ingredient – calamansi juice cooler. Calamansi is a fragrant, bitter-in-the-best-way citrus, and when you combine the juice in a glass with some good IPA, over ice, it’s going to be your new favorite thing. Pick up a 6-pack (I use Lagunitas) while you’re calamansi shopping, and you’re all set. Calamansi beer cooler, stock up for your next pool date.
THIS needs to be your two-ingredient summer beverage. I’m not typically about the hard sell, but this combination is greatness in a glass. If I owned a bar, with a beautiful outdoor patio overlooking the sunniest part of the California coast, and there was a Trader Joe’s nearby (#notsponsored), this would be on the menu.
More importantly, remember this combo come summer. I promise its a combination that can rival frosé, or even the best slushie cocktails….all the best aspects of easy-going, not too strong, daytime drinking at its best. Do it, and report back! xx!
