EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

The beer snow is great made with lager, pilsner or Hefeweizen beer.

For a nonalcoholic option, replace beer with nonalcoholic ginger beer, ginger ale or lemon-lime soda.

Cover and chill any remaining syrups up to 2 weeks. The syrups are great added to iced tea or mixed with sparkling water for a homemade Italian fruit soda.
