• In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat vegetable oil to 375°. In a bowl, mix 1/3 cup cornstarch and 1/2 tsp each baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk 1 cup each cornstarch and all-purpose flour, 1 tsp each baking powder and garlic powder, 3/4 tsp each ginger powder and salt, and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper. Pour in pilsner beer and whisk until smooth. Dredge drumettes and wings in dry mixture, then dip into batter, allowing excess to drip off. Fry wings in 2 to 3 batches for 10 to 15 minutes each, until golden brown, making sure temperature stays close to 375°. (Keep first two batches warm in a 200° oven.) In a clean bowl, combine lime juice, fish sauce and brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp cayenne. Toss hot cooked wings with half the sauce; reserve other half to serve alongside. Garnish with sliced scallions and lime zest.
