Make a Blackberry Lemonade Shandy Recipe

catering fort lauderdale - personal chef

Summer is upon us and nothing quite beats the heat like a bright, refreshing and effervescent adult beverage.
Originally called a Shandygaff, the Shandy has been around in Europe for several centuries. Originating in England, the Shandy is also very popular in Germany and Austria, where it is known as a Radler.

The original Shandy recipe is a mixture of beer and lemonade, but the term now represents a category of drinks consisting of beer mixed with citrus-flavored soda, carbonated lemonade, ginger beer, ginger ale or cider.
Although a typical Shandy mixes lemonade and beer in a 50/50 proportion, I chose to prepare this particular Shandy more like a cocktail. The base of the recipe is a concentrated blend of lemon juice, agave nectar and muddled blackberries—one of my favorite berries, which are in season right now (yay!).
The mix is shaken and double strained over ice to remove any seeds, then topped off with a crisp lager or pilsner, like Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Ingredients (Serves 1)
4 large blackberries
2 ounces fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 ounce agave nectar
8 ounces lager beer
Muddle the blackberries with the agave nectar in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the lemon juice and shake vigorously with ice for five seconds. Double strain the mixture into a glass over ice and top off with the beer.
Have you ever made a Shandy? What’s your special twist?

Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain. The leafy stalk of the plant produces ears, which contain the grains known as kernels. For every kernel on the cob, there is a strand of silk. The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also. The white and yellow hybrids are known as butter and sugar corn which contain both kinds of kernels. This cereal is known for its pleasant taste and its versatility. Baby corn is available in cans or jars in the supermarkets and is used in Asian cooking. This grain is generally available in summer and can be
