We adore a good slow-sipper, but when it comes to quenching your thirst on scorching summer days, nothing beats the classic shandy. Typically crafted with equal parts beer and lemonade, we’ve put a zesty twist on ours by swapping out lemonade for a ginger lime shrub, adding some bright complexity to this favorite summer drink.
Jam while you mix!
Let's get organized.
Here's what you'll need (in addition to what's in your box) to make this month's drinks.
- Fresh orange or grapefruit juice
- Egg white or aquafaba
- Flower for garnish (optional)
- Lime wheel for garnish (optional)
- Ginger root for garnish (optional)
Tools & Glassware
- Highball glass
- Coupe glass
Please note, the above are optional!
Don't have a shaker? Mix it up in a drinking glass with a spoon! Don't have a jigger? Use a shot glass or tablespoon measure. No fresh juice? These are just suggestions on how to get the most variation out of your box, but you can get creative on your own and experiment!
Ready. Set. Mix!
- 3/4 oz. Element Shrub
- 6 oz. chilled Rightside Brewing citrus wheat beer
- 3.5 oz. chilled club soda
- Dried hop flower
In a highball or pint glass, combine all ingredients and stir well to combine. Garnish with a dried hop flower.
- 1.25 oz. Element Shrub
- .5 oz Portland Syrups
- .5 oz lime juice
- 1 oz fresh orange (sweeter) or grapefruit (tarter) juice
- 1 egg white (or aquafaba)
In a shaker, add all ingredients and dry shake (shake without ice) for 30 seconds. Add in ice, and shake for another thirty seconds. Strain into a coupe glass. Make sure to get all that lovely foam on top! Garnish with a fresh flower.
- .5 oz hot honey
- ⅓ oz. Portland Syrups
- .5 – 1 oz lime juice depending on how tart you like yours
- 4 oz. water
In a shaker with ice, combine all ingredients and shake for 30 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with a lime wheel and a cross section of ginger root. If you prefer bubbly, swap out water for club soda (but add that at the end – shaking and bubbles do not mix!)
