This drink is so old that your great-great-great grandparents might have been sipping on it way back in the 1880s. Dear ol’ Gran would have had it with ginger ale or ginger beer, but some modern recipes include lemon soda, lemon-lime soda or even lemonade as an option as well.
Place the soda in a beer glass first and then add an equal portion of beer. If you reverse the order, the beer will foam up everywhere and you’ll look like a chump and nobody will hang out with you.
