Default A Summer Time Refresher:) So I Hear!

I never heard of this, but I want to try it..have you ever heard of a beverage called a shandy?

Seems you can mix 1/2 beer and lemonade, or like 1/2 beer and sprite.
All you shandy lovers do you have a recomendation on the how to's and brands? A google search showed an import from Barbados called a Twister. Gotta love any Caribbean connection:)

Have I been under a rock? Can you tell how much I drink!:):)

They've been around forever. They're vile, IMO.

But not as vile as a drink a young lady who's an officemate of my son's told me about the other week. I've blocked out the name, but you start with a half glass of Guinness and add a shot of Bailey's and a shot of Irish whisky. She claims it's her fave. She asked me if I wanted to go downstairs to the bar with her and try one. I declined.

Yes, we've known Shandys here as long as I can remember. Friends used to try to get me to try one, because I don't like beer. But even a beer mixed with 7-up or lemonade, still tastes like a beer to me!

Why on earth would you want to ruin the flavor of a perfectly good beer?

My husband mixes beer with V8 or tomato juice. To me that is just nasty, so I also will decline the lemonade mixture. When my son went to Germany he had a drink that was half beer and half coke or something - also nothing I would like to try.

you can take that a step further and make the best Margarita's you ever had (Ready2gonow has already tried them out); you take Corona Beer; frozen lemonade and some Tequila; use the beer to thaw out hte frozen lemonade and add Tequila to your liking; very very good.
