Follow the English/Irish tradition and pour yourself (and your friends) a Shandy. A light beer infused with lemon flavor is a great option to offer guests looking to indulge in a drink, but not kill it with the calories.
To further cut the fat, you may want to consider supplementing the lemon-lime soda with club soda and adding fresh lemon juice to the mix. Either way, we're sure you'll love this cocktail recipe!
3 to 4 ounces cold lemon soda (or lemon-lime if you prefer)
3 to 4 ounces cold light Lager or Pilsner beer
A lemon wedge
Combine the beer and soda in a Collins or highball glass and garnish with the lemon.
