At Oktoberfest, some of us had to drink these every other round, to pace ourselves for drinking from sunrise to sunset. The English have been making shandys since the 1600s. This version is from Eating Well magazine. If you prefer, you can substitute 1 1/2 cups ginger ale for the seltzer and frozen limeade.
- 1 1⁄2 cups seltzer water
- 12 ounces beer (nonalcoholic, if desired)
- 2 tablespoons frozen limeade concentrate
- 2 lemon wedges
- Combine seltzer, beer and limeade.
- Pour into glasses and garnish with lemon wedges.
This is far better shandy with either limeade or ginger ale, than the ones I've had before with sprite.
I like to through a slice of lime in my beer anyway, and this was a fun way to change up a plain old beer. I used lime wedges instead of lemon, and really enjoyed. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag game.
We tried this Shandy today both ways - as written and also by substituting ginger ale for the seltzer and limeade. My favorite was the one with ginger ale. This was a refreshing change from the way I usually like my beer, Michelada style (poured over lime juice in a glass with a salted rim). We used the ginger ale that comes in a glass bottle, as it has a more pronounced ginger flavor. Thanks Jen, this will be added to my beer rotation!
