We go back and forth on shandies, the lemonade-spiked, official beer cocktail of summer. Done right it's a super refreshing way to make your pint a bit more session-able. But done wrong (and we'll call any premixed bottled versions very wrong) and you've got a handful of lemonheads polluting your beer.
When it came time for us to concoct our own shandy, we could think of no better way to combine the tartness of lemon, the essence of beer (in our case, the already citrus-packed Citrus Wheat), and the spirit of summer than in the form of a special adults-only ice pop.
Plus it leaves one hand free for a pint.
