If you haven't noticed, we love a good tailgate. But between all the sliders, wings and dip, it's hard to find a place for a signature cocktail to really shine. Enter: the shandy, a refreshing mixture of beer and citrus that looks way more impressive than a six-pack but will still leave beer enthusiasts pleased. Typically made with lemonade, a shandy is a definite crowd-pleaser that doesn't require much effort. Our Grapefruit Shandy is a twist on the classic that your friends probably haven't had before. The best part? All you need are three ingredients!



3 12 ounce bottles Hefeweizen beer, chilled

3 12 ounce bottles grapefruit soda, such as Izze, chilled

1 grapefruit, sliced


In a pitcher, mix beer and soda. Divide among cups and garnish with grapefruit slices. Makes 6.
