20--- Ginger Lemonade Shandy

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
Serves 8

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.
