- Cook's Notes:
- Pilsner or lager work best for this drink, but feel free to experiment with your favorite. You'll need 1 to 2 six packs, depending on your taste.
- I prefer homemade lemonade, or Simply Lemonade® for a store-bought brand. You'll need one or two 1.75 liter bottles, depending on your taste.
