PREVIOUS: Ginger Shandy NEXT: Raspberry Sorbet

Ingredients (2)

  • 1 bottle chilled wheat beer
  • 1 bottle chilled raspberry lambic

Technically this is a radler (the German version of lager and lemonade) but the spirit—a beer of low-hop bitterness, combined with something fruity and refreshing—definitely skews shandy. Instead of soda, we call for a second beer, a Belgian lambic flavored with raspberry.

What to buy: You’ll need a wheat beer with low hops, such as Erdinger Hefe-Weizen, and a raspberry lambic (we’re fans of Timmermans Framboise Lambicus).

  1. 1Fill a chilled pilsner glass three-quarters full with the wheat beer (or if you prefer a more pronounced fruit flavor, fill only halfway). Pour in the raspberry lambic to fill.
