With Father’s Day this weekend the Ginger Shandy is great combination of what dad approves of, beer, and some extra ingredients to make it approved of by all your other age appropriate Father’s Day party guests.  A Shandy drink is a mix of beer and citrus-flavored soda, ginger ale, ginger beer, carbonated lemonade, or cider.  Generally, it is a half and half mixture of the beer and soda, cider, or lemonade.

This week we suggest you try a mixture of 3 bottles of your favorite wheat beer, such as Blue Moon, Shock Top, or Hoegaarden with 1 bottle of your favorite ginger beer, such as Zevia, DG, or Fever-Tree.  Combine the beer and ginger beer with most of the slices of lemon from one sliced lemon, and a few mint leaves in a pitcher.  Serve in a glass with ice,and a lemon and mint leaf garnish.

Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to wish the Father’s in your life a Happy Father’s Day!
