Inspired by the Charentes Shrub recipe, bartender Keith Groff created this sudsy mix of gin, citrus, falernum and beer.
1 1/2 oz. gin
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
3/4 oz. John D. Taylor’s Velvet Falernum
2 oz. hoppy beer, such as an IPA
Dash of orange bitters
Tools: shaker, strainer
Combine all ingredients, except beer, and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass and top with beer.
