Ginger Peter (Iron Star Urban BBQ):

1.5 oz ginger and habanero simple syrup (Boil water and sugar until the sugar dissolves completely. Add in a pinch of ginger and cut up habaneros)

Pour ingredients into a shaker. Shake until mixed, then empty into a glass with ice. Top with non-alcoholic ginger beer, garnish with a fresh whole habanero pepper, and enjoy.


Harvest Time Cooler (Red PrimeSteak):

1 oz Main root sarsaparilla

2 oz apple juice

.5 oz lemon juice
