Food & Drink - - BEER -

A shandy is usu­ally a lager or best bit­ter di­luted by 7UP or sparkling le­mon­ade, which is meant to lighten up the al­co­hol con­tent. Us­ing a Ger­man-style wheat beer (a.k.a. he­feweizen) adds some creami­ness to the body of the drink, as well as fruity ba­nana and spicy clove flavours thanks to its unique yeast strain. A cit­rusy soda kicks up the fruity flavours and its car­bon­a­tion makes the cock­tail even more re­fresh­ing and sparkly.
