Saffron-Limoncello Shandy

Inspired by British shandies—beer mixed with ginger ale or sparkling lemonade—this refreshing drink ups the ante with English hard cider and limoncello.

 

1 oz. limoncello
1/2 oz. saffron sryup (see below)
4 oz. dry hard cider
Ice cubes
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: Collins
Garnish: lemon twist


In a shaker, combine limoncello, saffron sryup and ice. Shake for 30 seconds. Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Top with cider and garnish.

 

To make the saffron syrup: Combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of granulated sugar and ¼ tsp. of saffron in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar and saffron. Remove from heat, strain into a jar, cover and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
