What you'll have to do

Step 1 – In a small bowl or clean mason jar, combine Bobbie's Boat Sauce, lime juice, pickle brine, and clam juice. Add a few dashes of Jugo or worcestershire to your liking. Shake or whisk to combine.

Step 2 – Place about 1-2 tablespoons of Bobbie's Boat Dust in a small flat dish that is just wide enough for the mouth of your pint glass. Rub spent limes along the rim of your glasses, and then rotate them rim-side down in the dish, coating them with Boat Dust.

Step 3 – Fill your glasses with ice, then half of the Boat Sauce mix per glass, then top with Picnic Pilsner.

Step 4 – Garnish with more fresh lime, pickled green beans, and enjoy!
