Strawberry Lemonade Shandies

This is the fifth post in collaboration with Katie at Twin Stripe. All week long we have shared recipes and tips for a perfect summer picnic. Be sure to check out Katie’s recipe for Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt today!

Strawberry Lemonade Shandies // Feast + West

These strawberry lemonade shandies were such refreshing libations at our picnic. Shandies make for a great picnic cocktail, because you can pack the beer and lemonade in a cooler to keep them chilled, then mix them on site in cups or jars. We also brought along fresh, sliced strawberries from the farmers market. We recommend using a canned beer, such as Deep River’s Twisted River Wit, so you have a lesser risk of broken glass at your picnic. A lighter beer, such as a Belgian, a Pilsner or an India Pale Ale will work the best with the lemonade. See the recipe below!
