A friend of ours recommended a novel way to shandy a beer. Rather than the usual Sprite or lemonade, you add a teaspoon of Sunquick cordial – strawberry and guava in our case. As you stir it in the beer, whatever it is, lightens and starts to look like one of those fancy yellow brews they serve at Oktoberfest.
It’s really quite tasty, bit sweet and refreshing. Much better than a soda shandy, and not diluted at all. Interesting little trick.
