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.
- 2½ parts Mead
- 1 part Lemon juice
- 1½ parts Ginger beer
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.
