Berlin's traditional wheat beer is drunk with a schuss, or shot, of either green waldmeister syrup (germandeli.com) 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.
- 1 ounce red-raspberry flavored syrup (or green Waldmeister sweet woodruff syrup)
- 16 ounces light german wheat beer
- Pour a 1 oz schuss of waldmeister or raspberry syrup into a large wheat-beer glass.
- Slowly add 16 oz cold Berliner Kindl Weisse or other light German-style wheat beer.
