Unforgettable UnderDog Shandies

As we hold onto these last days of summer (with a white-knuckled grip of desperation), we’re going to show you how to make friends and influence people with some beer mixology. (See? That phrase alone is impressive.) 

We present to you three different shandies using UnderDog Atlantic Lager — perfect for backyard BBQs, poolside parties, or your typical Tuesday night. (Each of these recipes make 4 drinks.) 

So Fresh and So (Minty) Clean 

You need:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3 cups of water
  • Peel of one lemon 
  • 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh mint
  • 2 bottles or cans of UnderDog Atlantic Lager

You need to do:

  • Combine 1 cup of water, sugar, and lemon zest in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar.
  • Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. (Putting it in the freezer speeds up the process.)
  • Pour syrup into a pitcher and stir in remaining 2 cups of water and lemon juice. 
  • Muddle mint leaves (4 to 5) in each glass and add ice.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of lemonade mixture into each glass, top with UnderDog, and enjoy. 

Simple and Spicy

You need: 

  • Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 lemon wedges 
  • 1 cup store-bought lemonade
  • 2 bottles or cans of UnderDog Atlantic Lager

You need to do:

  • On a small plate, combine the salt and cayenne pepper.
  • With a lemon wedge, moisten the rims of 4 glasses and dip each in the salt mixture. 
  • Combine beer and lemonade in a pitcher and pour over ice into each glass. 

Gingers Have No Soul 

You need: 

  • 12 slices of peeled ginger
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 4 ounces of spiced rum 
  • 1/4 cup of lemonade
  • 2 cups of UnderDog Atlantic Lager

You need to do:

  • Combine 1 cup of water, sugar, and ginger slices in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar.
  • Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. (Again, putting it in the freezer speeds up the process.)
  • Remove ginger slices from the mixture. 
  • Using a martini shaker to mix each drink, add ice, 1 ounce of rum, 1 tablespoon of the ginger syrup, and 1 tablespoon of lemonade. Shake well and pour into glasses.
  • Top each glass with 1/2 cup of UnderDog.
