This is a light and refreshing alcoholic drink perfect for a hot summer's afternoon. It is certain to be a hit with the ladies! I use Red Stripe since its taste is closest that of Castle Lager, but any lager would be good.


  1. Pour well chilled beer into tumbler.
  2. Gently pour in well chilled Sprite.
  3. NOTE: since the ingredients portions are equal, you could make this as small or as large as you like!

We had these in Germany on a recent trip, only instead of Sprite they used lemonade...very tasty!

I wasn't sure exactly how to make a Shandy since the last time I had one was about 20 years ago in Manchester England. I was telling someone about the combination of beer and lemonade and they didn't believe me. I looked up the recipe on RecipeZaar and found this easy recipe. This combination makes for one very light and refreshing concoction. It is amazing on a hot day. And try it Ginger Ale for a different taste sensation!

A good old standby. Improves a beer you are not keen on and highly enjoyable with beers you do like. Made it today with an Enterprise Brewery Knappstein Reserve Lager.
