Curated this a bit: Changed the recipe from a ratio to ounces - we prefer drinks this way. A Collins glass is around 10 ounces, so setting a parts drink to 3 (so 6 oz Rye, 3 oz St. Germain, and 2 1/4 oz lime) would not work. We would also prefer an amount of ginger beer instead of "fill the glass", as people's glasses are different. Finally, Kindred Cocktails assumes people are going to use fresh lime juice and other high quality ingredients.



Really nice drink for a beautiful spring day in San Francisco. And I don't even like ginger beer all that much...thanks for sharing....
