Not a fan of beer? Here are five ways you can spice it up
Learn to love the golden drink!
Are you one of those who doesn’t exactly enjoy a cold bower in the sun in the summer? You may not be entirely in the mood for the golden drink, which is otherwise a pretty budget-friendly cousin over the summer (when you also need new summer sneaks).
Then it is fortunate that there are several ways in which you can spice up your beer so that it does not taste quite beer-like and thus makes it easier for you to drink and maybe even enjoy.
At PartyPingo, we have collected five beer drinks that can spice up your summer beer and might get you to fall in love with beer.
5. Beer with Lemonade
When you mix beer with fresh citrus lemonade, you almost have the taste of sun and summer right there. Choose a reasonably ordinary pilsner, mix half/half with a fresh citrus lemonade, add ice cubes and a slice of lemon, and voila – a delicious beer drink for the summer. You can choose whether you want the citrus lemonade to be with or without a shower.
4. Beer with Ginger and Mint
If you love ginger, then this beer drink is definitely for you. For you, mix 50 percent ginger lemonade (or ginger beer if you like the shower) with 50 percent pilsner, and then you have a delicious beer drink with the taste of ginger. To top it off, you put mint in the glass, which gives a refreshing aftertaste. Also, remember a lot of ice cubes!
3. Beer with Sprite
It may not immediately sound like two things to mix, but don’t look the dog on your hair. You mix a light pilsner with Sprite about 50/50, and then you have a delicious beer drink. Beer with Sprite is refreshing, and the taste of Sprite makes it a perfect refresher for the summer’s warm evenings.
2. Wheat Beer
It may be that it’s just the taste of the ordinary pilsner you aren’t quite a fan of. Fortunately, there are many other types of beer, and wheat beer is one of them. It is a lighter beer that contains more wheat, and it often has an aftertaste of either banana or shelf flower – perfect for summer.
1. Beer with Grapefruit Lemonade
Already by the name, it sounds much more refreshing, and so is it. A Shandy is 60 percent grapefruit lemonade and 40 percent beer, but there is also only 2.3 percent alcohol in it. You can both make a Shandy yourself, but they can also be bought in stores.
