Happy Cocktail Party Day Gals! Since August is the last (un)official month of the summer we wanted to craft up the ultimate hot weather cocktail that's not only super refreshing, but also so easy to mix together. Today we're mixing up a delicious Watermelon Shandy.
What's better than a cold beer on a hot summers day? While a shandy is typically made with lemon, we decided to put our own spin on it since we kind of have a thing for watermelon cocktails.
The best part about this one is that it's literally only two ingredients - fresh watermelon juice and beer!
We opted to make ours with Dogfish Head's Namaste, but feel free to use any beer you have on hand!
As for the watermelon, we just defrosted a couple cubes from the freezer, but you can also just slice a couple of fresh slices and puree in the blender for easy and delicious watermelon juice!
Now it's your turn! Join the party and link-up your favorite cocktail recipe - old or new! As always, we're not sticklers here, so feel free to take a little creative license - wine, beer, mocktails, glassware.. we love it all!
