The whole world will be sitting with bated breath tonight to see tonight’s epic Olympic Opening Ceremony. We’re rooting for all the athletes tonight, and that Brazil pulls it off without a hitch. Here’s a nice cocktail to wash down all that pomp and circumstance. Creator Pamela Wiznitzer of Seamstress, NYC writes: “It’s a refreshing cocktail that’s meant for sipping while watching the Olympics. Most sports bars show the events and I wanted to pay homage to those venues by making a beer cocktail that beats the heat of summer days and plays up the flavors of Cachaça.”
Combine all ingredients, except the beer, in a tin with ice. Shake lightly and pour into a highball glass with ice. Top with beer and garnish with candied ginger and an orange slice.
