Friday Cocktails – Shandies, All Sorts
Did I also mention Agbalumo?
I generally keep it simple:
- Some sweetened syrup or fruit puree
- Some citrus
- Lemon-lime soda
Some days, I want more sweet than not so I up the soda ante, other days I’m in for the refreshing so I keep the lager-soda mix even. It is totally up to you what what you do…and that, baby is all you need. You can rustle up a pineapple, cucumber-mint baby – by blending all three, sweetening up and straining if you like…then combining with your soda and lager.
A Passion fruit version, complete with seeds
One from Zobo…
And a personal fave – the spiced Mango shandy.
Next on my list? A Watermelon-mint/basil-red chili version. And maybe an all herb one – pawpaw and scent leaf syrup? How about a fresh ginger version? With Turmeric and Aya? Or a riff on a Michelada?
And maybe I shall explore some rock shandies – the variety of non-alcoholic drinks that often combine soda, soda water, cordials and more. Who knows?
What would you make?
