In German, the language of beer, radler means “cyclist.” In beverage terms, a radler is a kind of beer-based “sports drink”—lager mixed with a soft drink, similar to an English shandy—a refreshing pick-me-up for guzzling when you stop at a kneipe, a countryside tavern. It’s simple and cooling, even when you’re not cycling the Alps.
What to buy: You’ll need a pale lager with hoppy bitterness, like Weihenstephaner. And for the soda, something with a clean lemon-lime taste, such as Jones Stripped Natural Lemon Lime, works beautifully.
