Summer Shandy with Cranberry

First Pic 2

Every year (well at least since I’ve been 21 ;-) ) when summer rolls around, I get so excited to see Leinenkugels’ Summer Shandy on the shelves again.  It’s so delicious and perfect for hot summer nights with it’s touch of lemonade flavor.  Last night, I was in an experimental mood and decided to try to add some cranberry flavor to my glass of Summer Shandy.  I had a bottle of Luna Kombucha Cranberry Flavored Tea Beer, a local favorite brewed in Columbus, so I added a splash of it to my beer (about 1/2 cup). The result was amazing! It was light, a little sweet and very easy to drink. And it paired perfectly with my BBQ dinner!

  1. I’m new to drinking beer (took me forever to acquire that taste!) and have always wanted to try a Shandy. This sounds fantastic with the cranberry!

    So I actually don’t like the Summer Shandy on its own, I think adding the cranberry tea flavored would make it much better! Thanks for sharing!

    P.S. Did you get my email about winning the Shabby Apple Giftcard giveaway?!

      The cranberry definitely turns it into a new drink!

      P.S. Since my lovely sisters are in Italy for the week, I will answer for Jackie. She did get your email about being the winner and I’m sure she is very happy about it! If she’s not, then I certainly will be! :)


  3. That looks so refreshing and delightful! Wish I had one right now while I work. Hope you’re having fun on your travels!!

    I LOVE Summer Shandy! And the splash of cranberry sounds amazing! I wonder if they sell that Luna in Cincinnati?? If so, I MUST recreate this!

      I’m not sure about Cincy but it’s definitely available in other areas of Ohio. I strongly recommend it — it has so many uses!
