I've teamed up with Samuel Adams Canada to share with you a recipe for a beer cocktail good for any time or season. A "shandy" (also known as a shandygaff) is typically made of beer mixed with a carbonated citrus beverage (usually something like sparkling lemonade). To be fancy, I chose a Blood Orange Shandy, of course made with a blood orange soda. Beyond it's orange glow and tropical look, it's a refreshing fruity take on your beer. Also, it's very simple as you cab see below, basically all you need is some combination of beer, soda, and orange(s).
I love drinking beer as much as anyone and this is a nice way to mix it up and add flavour. I'm usually averse to fruity beers with too strong a fruit taste, but here, you can control the amount of fruit soda and/or choice of fruity flavour to your liking. Hope you enjoy.
