Then I cued Elizabeth, asking her to help me describe my blog and she chimed in adding, "yah, and she makes all these awesome looking cocktails!"
While I love making cocktails, I didn't realize it was every something someone would associate my blog with. I loved it, clearly. If I can be known as the beauty-loving coffee addict who makes great cocktails, I'd say I did pretty good.
Either way, long story short, I feel like it has been too long since I shared a cocktail recipe with you, so here I am to deliver.
This has been the summer of shandies. A shandy, if you don't know, is when beer is mixed with carbonated beverage or juice, like ginger ale or lemonade. This year, particularly, has been all about the Lemon Shandies.
Now, I hate to be stuck up about my alcoholic drinks, but as a rule of thumb, homemade is almost always superior to any pre-mixed nonsense. And, the same goes with the shandies. While I've tried my fair share of bottled and canned lemon shandies the past 2 summers, I've never really been into them. However, this homemade shandy, kicked up a notch with a little vodka, has stolen my heart. I've dubbed it Lemonade Beer and it is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Have you tried any shandies? What did you think?
