I think it’s the perfect cocktail for warm nights. It’s refreshing and light and one both guys and gals will love!

Are you familiar with a shandy?

A shandy is beer mixed with a soft drink, lemonade, ginger ale or apple juice.

Called Biermischgetränke “beer-based mixed drinks” they are very popular in Germany.  For my shandy I chose a lemon-lime soda for a great citrus taste, I think you’ll love how easy it is to make! Here’s the recipe:

    A similar drink in france is called a “Panache”. it is served in a big wineglass with a slie of lemon folating on top and it is delicious. I think, but I’m not sure, that they use Rose’s Lime Juice instead of soda. YUM!

  2. Just–YUM! I’m going to make this this weekend–thanks!

  5. I remember when I studied in England that women ordered “Bitter Shandies” at the pub. And half-pints. The locals said they could tell it was an American gal if we ordered a regular pint. (That, and our accent gave us away).
