Celebrating my upcoming trip to my beloved England, this Thirsty Thursday features a drink that I often order at a pub in England when I’m not enjoying a local cider. Many of the beers are too hearty for my taste, but a lager is a crisper, lighter beer with a brighter flavor. When Rose’s lime juice, plus freshly squeezed lime juice is added, the lager is transformed into a lovely lime flavored light beer, perfect with the ubiquitous fish and chip meal or a Ploughman’s Lunch, composed of a thick piece of Stilton, Cheddar or a local speciality , Branston Pickle. and a hunk of crusty homemade bread. There are many brands of lagers available so pick one, buy some fresh limes and a bottle of Rose’s Lime Juice and you’re ready to go!
