Watermelon Beer

A few weeks ago when I was at the grocery store (um, where else would I be?) I was running around getting a few ingredients for the steak, egg, and arugula flatbread and as I was going out of the store, I ran to get a six-pack of beer and grabbed the first one that stood out. This beer so happened to be Curious Traveler Shandy and it is the most refreshing beer I’ve ever tasted. It is light and crisp and the lemonade pairs so well with the beer. I could go on for days about it and now it has a permanent home in my refrigerator.

Naturally, I wanted to create my own shandy to share. I know it’s not technically watermelon season yet, but the watermelon in the store looked so good it was hard to pass up. I got a quarter of a watermelon and trekked over to the beer section to find the perfect one to go with the watermelon; enter Shock Top Wheat Beer. Both the watermelon and the beer complement each other really well, and one doesn’t outshine the other. This is the perfect drink for a hot day after work when you just need a drink (or two) to unwind.

Watermelon Beer

1/4 watermelon, cut up into chunks
2-4 White Beers or Wheat Beers, I used Shock Top

Place the watermelon chunks in your blender. Puree until smooth, then pour into a sifter over a bowl. Strain until only the juice is left and there is no pulp -chill for at least an hour. Fill a glass with the beer and pour the watermelon juice on top. Serve immediately.

    1. Oh thanks for the suggestion – I will have to give it a try!!! I’ve had 21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon, which is great, but I will definitely have to check out that one! Thanks!
