Tailgate Recipes: Beer Cocktails

Beer and tailgating go hand and hand. I can't imagine one without the other. However, I think (and hope) you know my motto by now, so in the spirit of "elevating our tailgates", I present three beer cocktail recipes. These are all a perfect way to add a twist to the traditional tailgate drink.


Shandy
1 1/2 cups of seltzer or ginger ale
  • 1 beer, pale ale is best
    2 tablespoons of frozen limeade

    Combine soda, beer and limeade. Garnish with lemon slices.
