The Shandy: Your Perfect Cocktail for Summer

The Shandy is so simple to make, it's almost dangerous! The shandy cocktail is the simple combination of half beer and half lemonade. There are many variations on the Shandy, but we love ours with sparkling lemonade and light beer or cider.

If you're entertaining for a summer picnic or BBQ, consider stocking up on Shandy supplies! It's cold and refreshing, and it's low alcohol content makes it perfect for sipping from afternoon well into the cooler evening hours.


1 light to medium beer

1 can San Pellegrino Limonata



Pour 1/2 of the can or bottle of beer into 2 separate glasses. Fill to the top with San Pellegrino.


2 delightfully crisp shandies
