A Buck (such as the Kentucky Buck cocktail) is a genre of cocktail perfect for summer. It consists of a combination of citrus and ginger beer.

2 oz Roundstone Rye
1 oz strawberry lemon simple syrup*
top with ginger beer
garnish with a lemon twist

*strawberry lemon simple syrup: chop up a few fresh strawberries and lemons and put them in a crockpot with a simple syrup mixture (equal parts water and sugar) for about 3 hours.

You might need to add extra lemon juice because the strawberries are very sugary by themselves!
