Budweiser Fruit Punch (yield: 1 pint)
This is inspired by a favorite party drink from college. We would pop open a Budweiser and shake it up with a packet of Kool-Aid. This is a bit more elegant than our dorm room version, but it’s the same basic idea of mixing sweetness with starch.
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup Budweiser
2 tablespoons simple syrup*
squeeze of lemon juice
Combine pomegranate juice, orange juice and beer. Stir in simple syrup and finish with a squeeze of lemon. Add ice and garnish with orange slices.
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar has dissolved and you are left with simple syrup.
