Herb Infused Lemon Beertail

Pilsner is a sweeter, lighter beer with a hint of citrus, making it the perfect additive to a cocktail make with citrus herbs.

Herb Infused Lemon Beertail
For simple syrup:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup loosely packed lemon herbs, lemon balm, lemon thyme, lemon basil , lemon grass or lemon verbena. A single herb or mix is fine.

For lemonade:
Juice of 3 lemons
4 cups water
1 bottle (12 ounces) lightly flavored beer, such as a pilsner

Make simple syrup by stirring water and sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat until boiling. Remove from heat immediately add the herbs, cover and allow to steep for 10 to 30 minutes. Then strain out herbs.

In large pitcher, mix lemon juice, water, ice, and 1 cup cooled simple syrup. Arrange 4 glasses and fill each halfway with mixture. Top with beer.
To make a mocktail: substitute gingerale of non-alcoholic beer for the pilsner.
