Happy Hour: Ginger Beer Cooler

Last night, I dined at a local Burmese cafe with a friend. While we went there for dinner, which was delicious, I wound up getting tipsy on these beer drinks called Burma coolers.

With a lemon zing and tangy ginger finish, they were wildly refreshing, so I tried to re-create them at home.

To see how I made my version of this divine drink,

  1. 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  2. Fresh ginger root
  3. Juice of 1 large lemon
  4. 12 ounces chilled pilsner-style beer*
  5. lemon wedge, optional for garnish


  1. Grate the ginger, peel on, until you have approximately 1 tablespoon of grated ginger. Squeeze the juice out of the grated ginger using a cheesecloth or a fine sieve.
  2. Pour 3/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed ginger juice (reserve rest for another use) and lemon juice into a pint glass, along with the simple syrup. Top with beer.
  3. Garnish with a slice of lemon.

Serves 1.

*I used Birra Moretti.
