  • Ice cubes
  • 2 lemon wedges
  • 2 lime wedges
  • 2 orange slices, plus more for garnish
  • 10 mint leaves, plus a sprig for garnish
  • 3/4 ounce ginger syrup
  • 4 dashes orange bitters
  • 1 1/2 ounces gold rum,
  • 1/2 ounce orange liqueur, preferably Cointreau or Combier
  • 4 ounces to 5 ounces Belgian-style white beer


  1. Place 4 or 5 ice cubes in a pint glass.
  2. Combine the citrus pieces, mint, ginger syrup and bitters in a mixing glass, then muddle.
  3. Add the rum and orange liqueur; stir vigorously. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer twice, into the pint glass. Add the beer to fill. Garnish with an orange slice and a mint sprig.
  4. NOTE: To make ginger syrup, combine 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 12 coin-size slices of ginger root in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a slow, rolling boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes. Transfer to a glass container and let cool to room temperature. Discard the ginger slices. It's ready to use, but for best flavor, cover tightly and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours; store indefinitely.
