Our Lakeside Shandy Is Your New Favorite Drink
No more lame beer cocktails. Fresh citrus and a shot of whiskey turn a frat house cocktail into something you actually want to drink.
This recipe, the love child of Summer Beer (a classic mix of vodka, lemonade, and beer), and an Old Fashioned, Wisconsin’s unofficial state cocktail, is exactly what you want after a hot day on a cold lake.
1 organic lemon
1 organic orange
2 ounces whiskey
2 teaspoons honey
12-ounce bottle beer (lager, Kolsch, or pale ale)
4 organic pitted cherries, for garnish
1. Make the cocktail
- Juice the lemon.
- Cut the orange in half; cut two ¼-inch-thick slices from one half for garnish. Juice the remaining orange.
In a cocktail shaker, combine the lemon juice, orange juice, whiskey, and honey and stir to combine. Add 1 cup ice, cover, and shake well.
Pour the mixture into 2 glasses and top with the beer, dividing evenly. Garnish each glass with an orange slice and cherries and serve.
