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.
