Beer Shandy made 3 ways ! Two ingredient beverage with three version – standard (alcoholic), light and non-alcoholic – perfect drink on game day !
I kind of feel a little silly sharing such an easy, 2 ingredient drink recipe with you.
But it seems after talking to a couple of bloggy friends, that a Beer Shandy is not that well known all over the world.
After some googling, I found some recipes, all more or less the same, with mostly the soft drink which differs.
Lemonade is close to Sprite, but a bit stronger and I have tried a small glass … nope, not for me – I will stick to the Sprite.
Personally, I think a Beer Shandy is more of a ladies drink, almost like a Beer Cocktail, but also not quite.
Do not get me wrong, I know a lot of guys who like a Beer Shandy. Although, normally, most of them will have the leftover beer from the can or the bottle which the wife or girlfriend used to make her Shandy !
Right, so I have gone through different phases, as most of us (I think!).
Full alcohol, lighter alcohol for when I am watching my weight and more recently, alcohol-free, as alcohol and no gallbladder are not really friends.
Therefore, I include all 3 versions of making a Beer Shandy. This drink is an absolute must for those game days, or to quench a thirst quickly.
Especially after a lot of shouting at the referee … yep, I am one of those, the referee is always wrong when my team’s name comes up !
