Lemon Shandy
Refreshing lemon shandy. A simple concoction of lemonade and beer.

This is a super short and simple recipe. Nice and easy, and yet so refreshing for the perpetual hot & humid “summer” we have in Singapore.

Lemon shandy is made up of, as you may have guessed from the name, lemonade and beer (typically white beer/pale ale). The good thing about mixing this at home is that you can adjust the amount of beer and lemonade to suit your taste buds. Lemon shandy sold in a can or bottle is typically quite diluted in terms of the amount of beer, while the home concoction is usually half-and-half.

Hoegaarden happens to be my favourite brand of beer but it’s pretty expensive (at least to me) here. Beers and all things alcoholic are just so heavily taxed and so expensive in Singapore. Mixing it with lemonade is not only a refreshing way of having my beer, it helps me to “ration” it since I’m mixing it with something else … heheh … and yeah, I love carbonated drinks so I think this is the closest I can get to carbonated home made lemonade? :P

Ingredients
(makes one glass)

– chilled home made lemonade
– chilled white beer/pale ale

Directions

Mix equal parts lemonade and beer in a serving glass, or adjust the porportions to your liking. Garnish with a slice of lemon. Enjoy!

  1. Just nice for summer over here but I have a cough…cannot drink also…!

  2. Wow, this drink sounds really refreshing, although I am not a beer fan, but will definitely try this one.

  3. I’ve never tried this combo! How delicious!!! :lol:

  4. I’ve had this with a shot of vodka dropped in the bottom – it was called a Summer Beer – great combination!
    If your feeling adventurous, try a Dirty Beer – mix beer and Coke

  5. i’m gonna make pineapple shandy for my next partee hehehe (we have pineapple beer here and it’s pretty good!)

  6. Great summer drink! I love shandy but never made it myself. Also, Hoegaarden is my favourite too! I think Belgium beer is great! I tried those with fruity flavours and love it absolutely.. low in alcohol too, only 2%. :)

  7. That is perfect for the heat in Singapore for sure! I am a fan of shandy too but rarely drink it- this photo makes me want to have one now.

  8. I remember having Shandy on my first visit to Penang. Seemed weird at first, but I took to it.

  9. I don’t like beer, but I guess combining it with lemonade might make it taste somehow nice – especially when cooled…:) I just love cold drinks!
