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.

Healthy Summer 'Pasta' Salad
Pasta salad sometimes gets a bad reputation, especially in the summer, because so many people are trying to avoid carbs. But this recipe turns the notion of pasta salad on its head by replacing real pasta with zucchini ribbons. If prepped and cooked properly, they have the same texture and size of real pasta, maintaining the integrity of the pasta salad experience in a healthier way. And since it's served cold, you can prepare it ahead of time and use it for any occasion. See all zucchini recipes. Click here to see Pasta Salad, Please.
