Apple Shandy

A shandy is a drink that mixes beer and another carbonated beverage, usually ginger ale or a citrus-flavored drink. In this version, a light-colored beer gets a hint of sweetness from apple cider, plus the tiniest kick of lemon. Perfect for parties, this is great made in big batches and served ice-cold.
