A few days ago I added my Hawaiian Ginger Syrup to a glass of Heineken Lite. I personally don't like lite beers so I wasn't afraid to mess around with the Heineken Lite. Now Negro Modello I wouldn't have touched! Anyway, Wow! It was good. Tasted like a really fresh ginger beer. Someone just told me that English mix 7-Up with beer (usually a lager) and call it a Shandy. I looked Shandy up on Wikipedia and hey, the whole world does shandy.
"A shandy, or shandygaff, is beer mixed with citrus-flavored soda, carbonated lemonade, ginger beer, ginger ale, or cider. The proportions of the two ingredients are adjusted to taste, normally half-and-half. There are also non-alcoholic shandies known as "rock shandies"."
Check out that different countries and their version of the shandy.
In Japan, Shandygaff, is a mixture of beer and cola or ginger ale.
Recipe: Equal parts light (but tasty) beer with Pacifikool Ginger Ale. Let me know your results. Recipes and pics welcome.
