Berliner Weisse Mit Schuss (Berlin Style German Beer)

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by BecR2400

Berlin's traditional wheat beer is drunk with a schuss, or shot, of either green waldmeister syrup ( or red-raspberry syrup in it. Most pleasant. Another popular variation is "The Radler" which is equal parts beer and sparkling lemonade, served with a lemon twist. Prosit! Recipe courtesy Esquire.
