If you are a connoisseur of cold beverages of the alcoholic variety, you’ll enjoy the article I wrote for The Eagle outlining my top 3 beers to enjoy while staying cool in the hot midwestern summer months.
It certainly doesn’t limit my consumption to these 3 beers, but they are my go-tos. The beers hail from a local brewery, a domestic, and an import. One of the things I talk about is the shandy. I created a version all on my own and I share that recipe with you below. It’s a very simple recipe and one that I do regularly.
You should give this recipe a try and by all means, feel free to switch it up. Use a different beer, use a different lemonade, or try the lemonade and peach iced tea like I did. Let me know what you think of the taste. I’d like some feedback.
Who ever said beer had to be beer on its own?
Check out the link to the original article below. Enjoy yourself and above all, don’t forget to drink responsibly!
it’s the age-old tradition of keeping cool during the summer months. Ice cold beer. These are some of my top 3 beers for those hot days
Joe's Shandy RemixPrint This
- Chilled beer, I'm using dark beer such as Negra Modelo
- Chilled beer glass or mug
Make sure your beer is chilled.
Chill your glass or mug by running under cold water and placing in the freezer for at least 30 minutes
You can purchase lemonade or you can make it yourself. For this, I was using a combination of Crystal Light Lemonade and Peach Iced Tea.
Mix about 1/2 of your chilled beer in the glass, add 1/2 lemonade.
Stir and enjoy!
You can change the ratio according to your tastes. I usually start with 1/2 and 1/2 then add more beer as I drink it down.
