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,
Ingredients1/2 ounce simple syrup
Fresh ginger root
Juice of 1 large lemon
12 ounces chilled pilsner-style beer*
lemon wedge, optional for garnish
*I used Birra Moretti.
