    SpchTeachCooks's Note:

    As I watch my dear food network right now, it's on Dinner Impossible with Robert making meals from beer, and this reminds me of something I learned when I was living in the southern part of Germany. I figured I should share this as we don't get anything like this in the U.S. but it's really good. I normally don't like beer that much because it's too bitter for my taste most times, and German beer is the strongest I know! Anyway, this recipe can be made with any kind of beer but dark beer works really well. The combination sweetens up the beer a little, lowers the alcohol content even more, and gives it a unique taste, it's a little sweeter and less bitter, I guess you could call this the German version of a wine cooler... try it for your next party, even those who don't normally choose beer as their drink at a party will like it.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup beer (or any amount you like)
    • 1 cup carbonated lemon-lime beverage (I use 7-up, but Sprite, or even generic lemon lime works)
    • ice
    • 1 lemon twist (garnish) (optional)


    1. 1
      Take equal parts of beer and lemon lime soda over just a little ice to keep it chilled; be careful it will foam up a lot so take it slow. As you come to taste it, you can change how much beer or soda - if you really like beer the combination can be 3/4 beer to 1/4 soda (or vice versa if you don't like beer that much but want a taste of it). In Germany, at least where I lived in the Bavarian area in the south, this is very popular with the young people. Worth a try! :).

      Thanks for this recipe! Have enjoyed this in Germany and there is nothing more refreshing in summer. I've used both Sprite and a European-style lemon-lime sparkling water that they sell here in our area (Meijer stores in Michigan/Indiana). The sparkling water style is closest to what I've had in Germany. The bubbles are important as is the sweetness of the lemon/lime drink - we've tried unsweetened, flavored seltzers and they don't do it - nor does regular, flat lemonade. Couldn't go to Germany this year but this made it come to me :)

      Wonderful! This is so very refreshing and a great way to remove that bite from a strong beer. I have tried this with both dark and lite beer and I feel the results are the same. I use the 3/4 beer to 1/4 soda mixture with no ice and that is perfect for me. Thanks for posting this. Made for Fall 2011 PAC.

      Hi there! I've enjoyed "The Radler" many a time, both abroad and here in the U.S. of A. Be sure to use a sparkling lemonade, as the lemony effervescence is essential for an authentic tasting Radler, in my opinion. Very light and refreshing,and a favorite even among non-beer drinkers. Thank you for a walk down memory lane. Prosit!
