Summer Beer with Limoncello

An extra-citrusy take on the shandy.

Citrus and beer are one of summer’s best (and easiest) pairings. Here, the standard shandy gets upgraded with a generous pour of limoncello made in-house by Elvie’s beverage director Brandi Carter, who uses the kitchen’s lemon peels leftover from juicing.


  • 1 oz. limoncello (Elvie's makes their own, but store-bought options also work for ease of use)
  • 1/4 oz. honey syrup (1:1)
  • 1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • Miller High Life pony, on the side
  • Tools:barspoon
  • Glass:Collins
  • Garnish:lemon wheel, mint sprig


Combine the limoncello, honey syrup, and lemon juice in glass. Fill the glass part way with the beer, stir gently, then fill the glass with ice and garnish. Serve the remaining beer on the side.
