Dinner was Delicious

Scroll to Info & Navigation

Shandies are our favorite beverage for summer drinking. They’re sweet without being syrupy and boozy without impeding your ability to have a normal day after knocking two back at brunch. Even though here in Chicago you usually find a shandy made with beer and lemonade, we’re loyal to the traditional UK recipes that call for citrus sodas. Any light-colored beer will do, as will any citrus soda, but we recommend a wheat beer and pretty much anything but Sprite. To make your own, mix and match your favorites in equal parts directly in a glass, beer first. Garnish with orange and lemon slices, if that’s your thing. We used Hoegaarden with a carbonated lemonade we found at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods brand blood orange Italian soda. It was fucking delicious.

    Shandys are great! Hoegaarden is terrible for them! Don’t make shandys with Hoegaarden! “Any light beer will do” is not...
