Author Notes: The radler—a refreshing combination of beer and lemonade (or citrus soda) is a great summertime drink, and I believe it is a perfectly acceptable breakfast/brunch drink. —fiveandspice
3 to 4
fresh strawberries, quartered
ounces simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water stirred until the sugar dissolves)
ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
bottle wheat beer, chilled
- In a jar or cocktail shaker, muddle (i.e. smash) the strawberries. Add the simple syrup and the lemon juice and a handful of ice. Stir or shake until everything is combined and chilled.
- Strain the strawberry-lemon mixture into a pint glass and top with the chilled beer (not quite all the beer will fit).
