Recipe from the Tasting Table Test Kitchen » tthearts334 SHARES

To toast his new role at Tasting Table, PDT mixologist Jim Meehan mixed up a big cold pitcher of wheat beer, cassis and an old-school French apéritif called Byrrh. He calls the fizzy, sunset-colored punch a Beer Cassis. We call it the Official TT Drink of Summer.

If you get the ingredients nice and cold before mixing, consider adding ice to the individual glasses instead of the pitcher.
