Grapefruit Shandy

Created by: Sharon Garofalow, Cupcakes and Cutlery

Football parties are a great way to gather your friends and enjoy time together as you cheer on your favorite team. Switch up your next game day party by serving up a Grapefruit Shandy.

The tart grapefruit juice is the perfect teammate for a bottle of wheat beer. These are easy to make for a crowd by simply preparing the sweetened grapefruit juice ahead of time and setting out a self-serve area near your cooler!

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 2 bottles wheat beer
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  1. In a small saucepan, heat sugar and water over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
  2. Mix together grapefruit juice and simple syrup.
  3. In tall beer glasses, add ½ cup grapefruit juice mixture and top with wheat beer (½-1 bottle, depending on your taste and size of the glass).
  4. Serve immediately and store any leftovers in the fridge.

Make these even faster by using store-bought grapefruit juice!
