The Nebraska Shandy

Kindred Spirits by | Aug 2012 | Issue #67

Created at The Lauter Tun in Omaha, Neb.

The Nebraska Infinite Wit has notes of orange peel and coriander. In combination with the wheat, it has a mild but refreshing citrus flavor, which is enhanced by the addition of fresh-squeezed lemon juice. The piney aromatic properties of the gin provide a great complex nose to the cocktail, as does the sharp spiciness and carbonation of the ginger beer. You can also try experimenting with flavored Wheat beers, different, gins, etc. When combined in proper proportions (adjust to taste), this is an extremely refreshing summer cocktail.

3-4 oz Nebraska Brewing Co. Infinite Wit (or other Witbier)
1.5 oz Tanqueray Gin
1.5-2 oz Gosling’s Ginger Beer
0.75 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Stir (don’t shake) over ice, and strain into martini glass or serve on the rocks with a lemon wheel. Lemon bitters optional.
