Confession: I've never been a big fan of beer.
And I'm waaaayyy beyond the point of needing to pretend to like it impress some guy in college (confession #2).
But this, THIS, I can enjoy.
And even if you're not a beer fan- the ginger lemonade would be delightful on it's own- or with a shot of something or other.
Great addition to your summer fete or camping (glamping) trip!
Ginger Lemonade Shandy
2 cups fresh lemon juice (I squeezed 9 lemons to get this)
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger root
6 cups club soda
5-6 bottles Belgian white beer
In a small saucepan, combine lemon, ginger, and sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then remove from heat and place in a covered glass container in the refrigerator to cool (~2 hours).
Prior to serving, combine club soda with lemonade concentrate in a large pitcher.
In each serving glass, add 4-5 ice cubes, then fill half with lemonade, then topped off with beer. Mix gently and serve, garnished with a lemon slice if desired.
