Think of this as an extra-dry gin and tonic. Created by Jill Schulster, co-owner of the East Village bistro JoeDoe, the Honey Beer is a little sweet, salty, and bracingly lemony.

Honey, kosher salt
1.5 oz DH Krahn gin (or similar citrusy gin)
1 oz lemon juice
2 oz Dale's Pale Ale (or similar malty ale)

Dip the rim of the glass in honey and salt. Shake gin and lemon juice with ice, strain into glass with ice, and top with beer.
