Meyer Lemon Shandy - Homemade Meyer lemonade + wheat beer = the perfect drink to go with a salty snack! | foxeslovelemons.com

Believe it or not, I used to be somewhat adverse to lemons mixing with other types of food. Lemon chicken and rice soup really confused me and I didn’t understand the allure. What can I say? Taste buds change, and now I’ll order lemon chicken soup from the Greek carryout whenever I get a chance.

The mixture of beer and lemonade known as a “shandy” used to really perturb me, but you guessed it – not anymore! Today I’m bringing you a Meyer Lemon Shandy, because I’m still clinging to the last of this year’s Meyer lemon bounty.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty much incapable of having a beer without a salty snack! While The Original or Sour Cream & Onion Pringles® are always in my beach bag (a tradition held since childhood), I’ve recently been digging Zesty Salsa Pringles® Tortillas for at-home snackin’. They are crunchy tortilla crisps in the iconic Pringles® shape, load with tangy tomato flavor. You don’t need to serve a dip with them at all, so they’re super convenient to keep on hand for whenever a snack attack occurs.

‘Tis the season for basketball watching, beer drinkin’ and chip eatin’, so why not try this combo this weekend?

  1. This looks perfect for a sunny day!!

  2. Oh wow, this looks so refreshing!! Meyer lemons are so good. And so are pringles!

  3. Can you make me one of these tonight after class?  It looks delicious.  I think the use of a wheat beer was a great idea.  And the brand you used for this post – we’ll call it Shmoegaraden – seems like a perfect choice.  I tested the pringles for you earlier and I think they do have a good limey salty quality to them that pairs well with a cold brew.  

  4. so awesome! and so good with chips too! <3

  5. I haven’t heard of a shandy until you told me about them. I need to try this next time I’m snacking on some Pringles!

  6. I LOVE a good shandy in the summer. It’s so refreshing and light and perfect for beating the heat. These Pringles sound pretty tasty too. They are such a delicious snack….yum!

    • Yesssss, a fellow shandy lover! I think they are sort of polarizing, because I know some people who hate them. But in my opinion, beer + lemonade = what’s not to love?
