How to make:

SHAKE first 4 ingredients with ice and strain into ice-filled glass. TOP with pilsner.


Lemon wedge


The herbal notes of Becherovka are noted for combining harmoniously with beer, fittingly in this recipe a pilsner (Becherovka is Czech, as are the origins of pilsner). This combo is fortified with vodka and freshened with lemon juice to produce a long refreshing cocktail which makes a great alternative to merely drinking beer.


Adapted from a recipe created by Jim Meehan in 2015 for a seminar he was presenting in Prague.
