The first recipe I whipped up was a Witty Gin Fizz, one that Ashley described as easy. Basically, it's a Gin Fizz minus soda water and plus beer.
The original recipe calls for:
1.5 oz St. George Botanivore Gin
0.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice
0.5 oz Monin's Elderflower Syrup
0.25 oz Pasterized Egg Whites
4 oz Maui Brewing La Perouse (Belgian Wit)
I replaced the St. George Botanivore Gin (an awesome gin that we couldn't find near us) with another brand of gin and the elderflower syrup (which we could not find in the store) with blueberry syrup (we were short on options and it seemed like a good idea at the time). We also had to use Ommegang Witte instead of the Maui La Perouse.
The final product was sweet and probably a little too heavy on the blueberry (perhaps honey would have been a better alternative). Overall, it was a nice cocktail to sip on a hot day.
