The Summer Shandy.
What better way to kick off Memorial Day than with a refreshing beer cocktail? The Summer Shandy, made at New York City's Edi and the Wolf (an Austrian tavern), is both tart and fruity. The Radeberger pilsner is what gives the shandy its bold flavor; says Eduard Frauneder of Edi and the Wolf, "We love serving this drink at the restaurant; it’s light and refreshing, but still allows the flavors of Radeberger to shine." Serve this cocktail with grilled veggies and seafood, or even with your heavier barbecue fare, like bratwurst. With a shandy in hand, it's hard not to toast Memorial Day.

Summer Pudding
Nothing says English summer to me quite like a summer pudding, and I return to this recipe year after year, when the beautiful soft summer fruits are at their peak. I make a sponge rather than use the more traditional stale bread—the extra effort is well worth it. I also use more currants than other fruits as they keep the sweetness in check. Serve each portion topped with a dollop of crème fraîche or thick cream.Excerpted from SPRING by Skye Gyngell by arrangement with Quadrille Publishing, distributed by Chronicle Books, Copyright © 2016 by Skye Gyngell.

This is an old-fashioned English dessert, both simple and refreshing. Mixed berries, whatever looks best at the market, are layered with toasted bread then weighted to form a cake (an English “pudding”). I use Portuguese sweet bread, a grocery-store reminder of the Portuguese whaling men who settled here in numbers beginning in the 1800s. Brioche or challah would work equally well.
