During the recent scorching hot summer days I have enjoyed coming home from work and indulging in my favorite summertime drink - the Clara (Cerveza de Limon). I was introduced to this beverage during my first trip to Spain. A combination of beer and lemonade, this drink is bright and refreshing. The English call the drink a Shandy.
It makes me laugh to watch American television commercials as they advertise the lemon beer product. American companies act as if they've discovered a great new product. While the drink is certainly great, it has been around for a long time. And instead of buying the canned product, I enjoy mixing my own.
Simply fill a chilled glass three-quarters full of beer and top with lemonade, Sprite or 7-Up. I find lighter beers are better for this drink such as Corona or Dos Equis.
