Summer Brews are the best - refreshing, flavorful, citrus-y and light. The original Summer Brew is beer mixed with vodka lemonade. Delicious. However, I'm a huge fan of wheat beers (Boulevard, Blue Moon, etc.) topped with an orange... so, I created my own version of a summer brew with fresh squeezed orange juice, vodka and wheat beer. I garnished it with fresh blue berries and an orange slice to make it colorful and fun... it is, after all, a cocktail.
Orange & Blueberry
3 oranges, 2 juiced, 1 sliced
1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/4 cup of vodka
4 wheat beers (ex. Boulevard, Blue Moon)
Fresh Blue Berries
Mix together the fresh orange juice, water, sugar and vodka just before the party - keep it cold in the refrigerator, then add the beer and garnishes when served.
Summer Brews are great for outdoor parties - more refreshing than wine on these hot summer evenings.
