10 Shandy Cocktails That are Straight-Up Summer in a Glass

Ten easy and refreshing beer cocktails to get your summer started on the right foot.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Shandy

Baking a Moment knows that rhubarb and strawberries were put on this earth to be blended together. That sweet-tart gorgeousness is the genius addition to her fresh twist on a shandy. Get the recipe here.

The Aloha Shandy

Tropical fruit juices bring the aloha to this delicious shandy. Can we please drink this on vacation? Right. Now. Get the recipe here.

Mango-Habanero IPA Shandy

A little spice feels just right in a shandy. Especially when it's in the form of a feisty habanero-flavor IPA. This recipe from Glue and Glitter gets it done by mixing that spicy beer with a refreshing mango-lime puree.

The Porcupine

This fabulous little concoction opts for pineapple juice with the beer instead of the traditional lemonade mixer. Then rosemary. Then Prosecco. Sign us up. Get the recipe here.

Mescal Shandy

Cali-Zona is giving us all the summer-in-Baja-California feels with this one. This shandy twist features smoky mescal blended with sweetened lemon juice, finished off with a crisp Pilsner ale. Get the recipe here.

Tea Shandy

Oh, yes. Urban Bliss Life is keeping it simple and refreshing with this pretty cocktail. Tea, lemon, and a good ol' IPA-style beer. It's basically an Arnold Palmer mixed with your favorite hops, and we are so into it. Get the recipe here.

Orange Shandy Satsuma Cocktail

As if fresh orange juice and hefeweizen beer aren't a refreshing enough combo, this cocktail also features a bold splash of satsuma rum liqueur. And we love how Take Two Tapas suggests this drink as a perfect accompaniment for dinner or for breakfast. Get the recipe here.

Brûléed Grapefruit Beer Cocktail

Have you ever experienced the bliss that is a brûléed grapefruit? If you haven't, you need to. Drinking with Chickens sassed up a traditional shandy by using brûléed grapefruit juice, citrus liqueur, and a citrusy IPA-style beer. Get the recipe here.

Southern Shandy

A touch of brandy makes many drinks just a little better. Pretty Plain Janes proves it with this pitcher-worthy peach shandy. Get the recipe here.

Ginger Beer Shandy

If sitting on a front porch on a warm summer evening was a drink, this would be it. Pilsner, lemon juice, and crystallized ginger make a pretty and refreshing summer porch sip. Get the recipe here.
