Here are the recipes we used in Episode 6 of 3 Growlers  to make some great summer time Shandies and Radlers:

The first one is a Texas Grapefruit Radler:

Texas Grapefruit Rattler

1 chilled beer (we used Summit Pilsner and Lift Bridge Farm Girl Saison)
1/4 cup pink grapefruit juice
grapefruit slices for garnish

1. Chill a pint glass or Mason jar.
2. To the glass, add the ice and a dash or two of bitters. Slowly pour the Lonestar and top with grapefruit juice. Garnish with grapefruit slices and serve immediately.

The second was a Blackberry Mint Lemon Shandy inspired by this recipe:

Blackberry Mint Lemon Shandy

12 oz. pale ale beer (again we used Summit Pilsner and Lift Bridge Farm Girl Saison)
handful blackberries
1/4 cup lemonade
mint for garnish

  1. Muddle blackberries in bottom of glass. Squeeze lemonade over blackberries.
  2. Pour beer into glass and garnish with a generous sprig of mint.

At first I was a little skeptical of both of them.  But I loved them so I went on to make them for a family get-together.  There we tried them with Grain Belt and it worked great as well!

Enjoy the summer!
