I have mentioned it before, but I am just not a beer drinker. I have tried, I really have. Not to mention everyone just assures me that if I try so and so, they just know I will fall in love with it. "I just need to try a good one" Here's the deal, I've been to over 40 breweries and still, beer is not my cup of tea.
I love to cook with it. I also love to use it as a cocktail topper. I do really love visiting the breweries and quite frankly, I really do want to partake and I finally discovered the best way to do so...shandy style! A true shandy is half beer/half lemonade and I just decided to mix it up a bit.
When we were at Blue Mountain in the blue ridge mountains of Virginia, I spied a can of Izze blackberry soda and bells went off in my head. I cracked the can, had my husband drink a big gulp from each of my beer samples and added the Izze.
And delicious it was!!
Finally, I got to be a big girl at the brewery. Haha
You can make any flavor shandy you want with any kind of soda, really simple and super easy for anyone who doesn't consider themselves a beer drinker.
