Recipe by alligirl
This is a take-off on a drink called a French 75, which uses champagne. That has been replaced with beer in this recipe. "The hops and carbonation in the beer worked well with the lemon juice to make a crisp drink with the right amount of sweetness. The cocktail had a slight beer nose but the ingredients made for a very pleasant flavor combination." Taken from cocktailvirgin.blogspot.com and posted for ZWT.

- 1⁄2 ounce fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄2 ounce simple syrup (equal amt. of sugar and water, boiled and cooled)
