Demi Panache, Shandy or Radle

Being more of a beer drinker, I wasn't sure if I'd like this blend. I mixed my first Shandy with Minute-Maid Light Lemonade (3 carbs in a 12-ounce can) and found the drink to be a nice summertime Low-Carb Bartender alternative to simply quaffing a cold beer. Shandies are very popular in Europe, especially with younger drinkers. In Germany, this drink is known as a Radler.

6-ounces low-carb beer
6-ounces diet lemonade (or diet lemon-lime soda)
1 thin lemon slice

Pour 6-ounces of ice cold low-carb beer and 6-ounces of diet lemonade into a chilled pilsner glass. Garnish with a thin lemon slice.

Makes 1 serving, 3.75 carbohydrates (using a low-carb beer with 2.5 carbs per 12-ounce serving)
