Tailgate Recipes: Ginger Peach Beer

This recipe from Giada looks and sounds so good. I cannot wait to try it!

Three 12-ounce bottles chilled beer, light or mild, such as Modelo Especial (not dark beer)
3 cups (24 ounces) chilled peach nectar, such as bottled R.W. Knudsen brand or canned peach nectar
2 fresh peaches, pitted and cut into wedges or 5-ounces frozen peach slices, thawed
3/4 cup Ginger Simple Syrup, recipe follows

Directions: Combine the beer, peach nectar, peaches and syrup in a large pitcher; stir to blend. Serve immediately.

Ginger Simple Syrup:
1/2 cup sugar
One 4-inch piece fresh ginger, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

Place 1/2 cup water, the sugar and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring the syrup to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Let the syrup cool completely, about 20 minutes. Strain before using.
