Georgia on My Mind


Beer, an increasingly popular mixer, adds carbonation and a pleasant funkiness to cocktails. The apricot ale here offers fruitiness, too.

Slideshow: Pitcher Drinks

  1. 1/3 cup lightly packed mint leaves, plus small sprigs for garnish
  2. 12 ounces bourbon
  3. 4 ounces crème de pêche (peach liqueur)
  4. 4 ounces fresh lemon juice
  5. 2 ounces pure maple syrup
  6. 24 ounces chilled apricot or peach ale, such as Samuel Smith’s Organic Apricot Ale
  7. Ice
  1. In a pitcher, combine all of the ingredients except the ale, ice and mint sprigs and stir until the maple syrup is dissolved. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
  2. Add the apricot ale to the pitcher and stir well. Pour into 8 ice-filled highball glasses and garnish with mint sprigs.
