If you’re wondering where this beverage it got it’s interesting name, here’s a bit of history. A Shandy is a drink made of beer mixed with lemonade, ginger ale or ginger beer. It first appeared in Britain in the mid-nineteenth century. Lemon Shandy is a thirst quenching drink that is so easy to make, maybe that’s why it’s been popular for so long. I love the combination of lemon with a wheat beer or light lager. With the addition of a twist of lemon, it’s a drink that’s perfect for a hot summer day.
