How to Make It

Add whiskey, ginger beer, and bitters to the glass, stir gently. Add a handful of ice, then fill to the top with Oktoberfest beer. Give it another quick stir and enjoy.

Why We Like It

This refreshing recipe uses ginger and honey flavors to emulate a gingerbread cookie, a popular fall and winter treat in Germany. And because I had received some as a gift, I used Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey. If you don’t want to be seen purchasing honey whiskey, just use regular old whiskey and add a little honey; the bitters will help tone down the sweetness. I top it all off with an Oktoberfest beer (in my case, Bob’s 47 by Boulevard Brewing Company, but any Oktoberfest beer will work).
