Psychocandy Tea and Cream Ale Shandy
Fancy a sweet, fizzy pumpkin cocktail? The shandy is a refreshing summer drink, enjoyed all over Europe. It’s known as a radler in Germany, and in France as a panaché or a monaco with lemon soda and grenadine. We swapped traditional lemon soda for our caramel pumpkin rooibos tea and our favorite cream ale, Boddingtons Pub Ale. Made of half beer and half tea, it’s a low ABV drink to enjoy in the hottest days of summer. Perfect for your next BBQ or pool party. Make it a mocktail by substituting cream soda for the cream ale.
