Farm-to-Bar: The Luebe-Lu

The Luebe-Lu
Patrick Reynolds

Recently I was invited to Austin, Texas to celebrate a good friend’s graduation. Having never been there before, I left it in the very capable hands of my host to show me the unique and delicious ropes. “Keep Austin Weird” is their motto, and if not for Austin’s artists, I don’t think I ever would have seen such a beautiful and inspiring side of weird.

It’s with that inspiration I give you the Luebe-Lu, a drink most enjoyed outside with sun, sport, and friends. Cheers!

10 oz. hefeweizen

2 oz. cold pressed strawberry basil lemonade

To make lemonade: Chop 1 cup chopped strawberries and 2 basil leaves with 1/2 cup sugar, cover and refrigerate over night for the a cold-pressed syrup.

Mix 6 oz. of syrup with 6 oz. fresh lemon juice and 12 oz. water. It’s an awesome strawberry basil lemonade that puts a lemon wedge to shame.
