Summer is my FAVORITE season.  Yes it is hot as hades in Houston, but summer brings out the best events, food and longer days to pack more fun in.   For my family, summer means my dad will be hopping on the grill and my sister and I will head out to Cypress to chill on the deck while eating some good food.  This summer, we have stepped it up a notch with some fun summer drinks to sip while chillaxing on the deck!  Based on around the Barritt’s Ginger Beer, I created a delicious Pineapple Mule recipe which is perfect for the summer. Check out the recipe below!

Bonus Tip!

We loved the Barritt’s Ginger Beer so much, I used it in a mojito recipe a few weeks later!  The recipe did not call for it, but we discovered that a splash of Barritt’s Ginger Beer gave the mojito a good kick.  So you see, ginger beer works in more than just a moscow mule!
