Lifestyle and food blog How Sweet Eats offers a cocktail fusion for patrons to try out that combines the two popular cocktails of a shandy and sangria into one citrus libation. The sangria is creatively made from beer rather than wine or exclusively sparking soda and topped with citrus fruits for an added tart sweetness. The unconventional blend of savory, sweet and bitter flavors creates a flavorful and seasonal summer drink.

The Meyer Lemon Shandy Sangria is a refreshing carbonated boozy punch made from a base of citrus beer, ginger beer and lemon soda. The combination of beer and ginger beer replicates the Shandy. The citrus notes of the shandy are then further brought out with slices of fresh fruits such as lemons, lime, grapefruit and apple and a dash of Grand Marnier to complete the drink.
