LEMON-LIME HEFE SHANDY
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.
3 oz Sicilion Lemon Italian Soda (or sparkling lemon soda)
1 can Abe Erb Brewing Co. Das Spritzhaus Hefeweizen
1 Add 1½ oz chilled lemon Italian soda to each of 2 tulip or cocktail glasses. Squeeze juice of ¼ lime into each glass. Pour half the can hefeweizen over mixture; repeat for the other glass. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
