Shandy (but with lemonade)

posted by David Ecklein @ 11:52AM, 7/02/06

We discovered shandy when visiting the Netherlands years ago. They make it with lemonade instead of ginger ale. Our adaptation is 1 can beer to 2 or 3 cans lemonade. Served with ice, it makes for a quick, inexpensive, and delicious light summertime punch!

I'm from the UK. It is made with 1/2 a glass of lemonade, followed by half a glass of either bitter or lager. Lemonade goes in 1st to reduce foaming if it's poured over the booze.

Enjoy!!

My English neighbors use 1/2 ale, 1/2 "lemonade", but I learned that what they call "lemonade" is actually 7-up. It's a nice light drink.

I'm not a real beer drinker, but I enjoy the shandy with their wonderful home cooked fish and chips meal, with buttered white bread, and mushy peas!

We travel often to the UK and enjoy the UK recipe which is:

1/2 part Scheppes Lemonade (poured first)

1/2 part Stella Artois beer

Unfortunately, we have not been able to locate the Scheppes in the U.S.
and bring back several liters on our visits to the UK.

The best and perhaps original recipe is 1/2 Schweppes lemonade (poured first), 1/2 Stella Artois Premium 5% Lager beer, which we enjoy on our visits to the U.K.

Sadly, the Scheppes lemonade is not available in the U.S., and other substitutes do not result in a comparable taste.
