Edna Scott, the owner of Edna’s Club & Restaurant in Oklahoma City, came up with the lunchbox by accident while trying to make another drink, probably a boilermaker, according to her daughter Tammy Lucas. For such a low-brow cocktail, the instructions are very specific. The beer must be Coors Light, not another light beer. And the glassware must be ice cold. As for the orange juice, no need to squeeze it fresh. Store-bought juice is fine.

  1. Step 1

    Place a glass mug, with a shot glass set inside it, in the freezer until ice cold, about 15 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Fill the frozen shot glass with amaretto, then fill the mug with the beer. Top the drink with a splash of orange juice, about 1/2 ounce.
