Mountain Berry Shandy

I remember a time during college when I was obsessed with Shandy’s but I may have overindulged back then so I haven’t really enjoyed them much in recent years. I found a bottle of Not Your Father’s Mountain Ale in the market the other day and thought it was time to bring back the Shandy with a Beautiful Booze twist.

There were also some delicious berries at the market so I threw those in my basket along with some fresh lemon to make sure it would be balanced. Once I put it all together I found a little sugar was still necessary, as the berries had made it a little tart along with the lemon juice. Finally at the end, once it was topped with the Mountain Ale it was absolutely delicious and I am definitely back on the Shandy train.



  1. Combine berries, vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice
  2. Shake hard to break up berries and chill and combine ingredients
  3. Fine strain into a highball glass over fresh ice
  4. Top with Not Your Father’s Mountain Ale
  5. Garnish with a lemon twist
  6. Enjoy!
