My girlfriend Sarah felt bad that I always shoot videos alone. Either that or she just wanted one of the delicious beer cocktails I’m always making.
In this video, Sarah joins in to try a couple variations of the Shandy beer cocktail, known as the Shandygaff in the U.K. The Shandy is made with a beer and either lemonade or ginger ale. We tried both versions to see which comes out on top.
In the end, my preference for lemonade and her preference for ginger ale decided the victor. A split decision!
Besides learning a new drink, I also learned that when your girlfriend joins in on a beer video you should cheers her and not the camera. Hey, I told you I’m used to doing these things alone ; )
How to Make a Shandy
This one is simple. You will need:
- A light beer. Remember though, light doesn’t mean no flavor. Go with a microbrewed Czech style pilsner, like Blue Paddle from New Belgium.
- Either ginger ale, ginger beer, or lemonade.
Mix equal parts together in a pint glass.
Have you had a Shandy? How did you make it? Should only Sarah do videos from now on with me as camera operator?
