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: http://youngaustinian.com/2014/05/09/texas-grapefruit-rattler/
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: http://camillestyles.com/drinks/bottoms-up-super-bowl-shandies/
Blackberry Mint Lemon Shandy
12 oz. pale ale beer (again we used Summit Pilsner and Lift Bridge Farm Girl Saison)
1/4 cup lemonade
mint for garnish
- Muddle blackberries in bottom of glass. Squeeze lemonade over blackberries.
- 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!
