This French Monaco recipe is a delicious and refreshing grownup version of the classic beverage traditionally served to children in France.

A bit like a beer-infused Shirley Temple, the French Monaco makes great use of a pale lager, lemonade and a syrup. Given that there is generally a more relaxed attitude toward alcohol in Europe, the drink is often ordered by French kid's, as American children order Shirley Temples.

This particular grownup French Monaco recipe is more cocktail than bubbly lemonade that involves only lemon and pomegranate juices, sugar, simple syrup and a lager beer.

This fruity drink is perfect for summer and is the perfect option for those looking for the crisp taste of a light beer without the sugar content of a shandy or radler.
