Cure for What Ails You
Cure for What Ails You is a spicy, sunny mead highball from Sam Slaughter at Chilled magazine. While most mead cocktails do best with a drier mead, this one doesn’t care if yours is syrupy-sweet; the warm bite of ginger beer and the tartness of the lemon juice keep the sweetness in check.
Shake the mead and lemon juice with ice, and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Top with the ginger beer. Express a lemon peel over the drink, rub it around the rim of the glass, and drop it in as a garnish.
