Paired with an IPA
I have had such a hard time with Mondays lately. I’ve actually had a hard time with Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays also. I don’t know if it’s just because this time of year is kind of uneventful of what. We don’t have many holidays right now. I mean Mother’s Day and Memorial Day are just around the corner, but April has always been kind of blah. We have also gotten quite a bit of snow these past few days, so maybe that’s the problem. I just can’t focus lately!
In response to my unfocused mind, I’ve decided to brighten up this Monday with a cocktail. I am so fond of beer in cocktails that I decided to make a party punch that highlights one of the most extreme beer flavors: hops…and a lot of hops. This tropical pineapple beer party punch is a day brightener for me, and I hope it is for you too! This recipe is very simple
It all starts with a large pitcher filled with ice.
Pour in the ginger ale.
Then, pour in the pineapple juice.
Add beer…and lots of beer if you wish…
Stir, stir, stir!
Add fresh pineapple chunks and dollop with pineapple sorbet or sherbet.
What is not to love about this bright and cheerful party punch?! Make it for your next get together! Your guests will not be disappointed!

I used a very strong IPA for this recipe. IPAs are extremely bitter, and is definitely an acquired taste if you've never had one. If you are new to beer, I would go with only 1 IPA or something much lighter like a wheat beer or pilsner.
Alternatively, you may serve this party punch non-alcoholic. Just eliminate the beer all together.
Alternatively...alternatively, you may also substitute rum (or even add it in addition to the beer).
