Author Notes

Sometimes necessity is the mother of recipe invention. This cocktail was developed from the contents of the freezer at a rented house one August. I am a big fan of Shandy's in the summer and since we didn't have our usual ginger ale when we were craving them late one evening, we made this instead. We were worried that the concentrate would be too sweet, but it actually worked quite well and we have added it to our summer drink rotation. —Kelsey Banfield
