Citrus Beer Shandy

Beer blended with honey and citrus makes a pleasing and refreshing summer beverage!

Beer shandies with a hint of citrus and sweetened with honey are the perfectly refreshing summertime beverage!

There’s a slight change in the air.  It’s subtle, but it’s there.  It’s the change that all parents are talking about and all kids are dreading: the changeover from summer break to back to school.  Some of us love it, some of us do not.

It’s curious how the air seems still as I walk my dog each night.  I believe it’s because there aren’t any kids riding bikes, playing catch or chase in the front yards.  Instead they are packing in as many outings and sleep-overs as possible.   Everyone knows the end is near.

I, however, am not ready to give up on summer.  I want to sit outside until it is dark and watch fireflies and listen to the locusts.  I want to take in the smell of fresh cut lawns and listen to the relaxing sound of water from the sprinklers raining down upon our yards.  Before I start thinking about schedules and routines I’m going to soak up the last drops of summer with a few of these citrus honey beer shandies.  These beer shandies have the tang of lemonade, the kick of vodka and the deep wheat flavor from the hefeweizen beer.  A little honey sweetens it all.  I never knew beer and vodka could taste this good!

I have to remember these beer shandies when it’s the dead of winter and all the cold and gray around me becomes oppressive.  While these drinks will not bring on a heat wave, they will remind me of all that was good about summer and remind me of what lies ahead.

  2. You know, I’m usually the first to wish for fall. The first to bust out the pumpkin and light my apple cinnamon candles. But this year, I’m relishing the summer and wishing for it to stay just a little bit longer. So I’ll drink a few of these in hopes to extend the warmth and sunshine! THis is absolutely my kind of drink!
