Cocktail Hour: Say Goodbye To Summer With A Stripey Shandy

Today is the last day of summer. I know. Where did it go?! I plan on bidding my favorite season goodbye from the roof of my building this evening, watching yet another gorgeous sunset with a refreshing cocktail in hand. Join me — well, in spirit, from your own sunset-watching location — by stirring up a yummy Stripey Shandy. Get the recipe after the jump!


  • 1 bottle Smirnoff Ice Original
  • 1 bottle Red Stripe beer
  • Lemon wheel

Preparation: Pour chilled beer, then Smirnoff Ice into a pint glass and top with a lemon wheel. Drink while watching the sunset and savoring the last moments of summer. Drink another to prepare for the upcoming winter. Repeat as necessary.
