Popular in England and Germany, the fizzy, citrusy combination of citrus and beer known as a shandy is a flavor sensation that Southerners can definitely get behind!

This easy version combines a light, crisp Mexican lager and store-bought limeade for a nearly effortless crowd-pleasing cocktail. To make it, simply pull out your favorite iced tea pitcher, stir together the beer and tart limeade, and stash it in the refrigerator to get nice and cold before your guests arrive.

Light, fizzing, and refreshing, it's the party drink for your next backyard barbecue. Serve with Crispy Onion Rings with Kickin' Ranch.

  • 4 cups cold limeade (such as Simply Limeade)

  • Lime slices, for garnish
