I recently went over to a friends house to get ready for the up coming Wirt Summer Fest. While we were discussing club ideas she made us a drink. I will admit the last real drink I have had, well beside a margarita or Big Al filled with wine, was the Lemon Drop. Marlys pulled out a glass pitcher, a frozen can of lemonade concentrate and 3 beers. BEER! Hell I haven’t had a beer since High School, and yes I was one of those girls chugging beer and shot gunning with the best. Man that was a long time ago and to think my kids are only a few years off from that age. Time to invest in a really good set of binoculars.
Shandy, is what she called the drink. It was perfect for the hot summer day and the conversation was bliss for me. Not very often to I get to have an adult conversation other than with Macgyver. I looked on the internet and it would seem that I have missed the whole Shandy fade. Who knows how, maybe between diaper changes or potty training events. I think now is the perfect time to bring it back, you know, in the spirit of Summer and all. Hope you give it a try and enjoy!
What you need:
3 Beers – any kind and for a fun extra kick try the raspberry flavor
1 can of frozen concentrate lemonade
Doing the deed:
Pour the lemonade into the pitcher frozen, no need to wait for it to defrost. Next remember when adding the beer to lean the pitcher so help stop some of the head from forming. Give it a stir and pour over ice in a glass. Find a chair in the shade outside and enjoy.
