Hi Guys! Today we have a fun little drink for you. Summer Shandy!! I’m a total (craft) beer and champagne lady myself and during hot summer months I’m usually craving one of these guys. Currently, I’m digging nice, strong IPAs, but when it’s super hot I just want something light…with a small kick! I use a nice wheat based hefen, which lighten up tremendously with the addition of lemonade, but feel free to use a pale ale of your choice. It’s really up to you. I like making my own lemonade, using fresh organic lemons, because it makes me feel a little less trashy about drinking this awesome drink. :) Anyway, I hope you all enjoy a nice Summer Shandy during these hot summer months! xx, Jenny
