MOBE kitchen tip:

  • Ginger beer is a (typically) non-alcoholic carbonated beverage made with water, ginger, and sugar. It has a strong, spicy, and fragrant ginger flavor.

Recipe notes:

  • If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can use a spoon to crush the mint leaves to release their flavor and oils. Or just add the mint leaves to the pint glass filled with ice, then add the other ingredients.
