Super Bowl Shandies

Super Bowl weekend has finally arrived, and it's five 'o clock somewhere! My latest original cocktail concoction is now up on Camille Styles, and it seems to be the perfect brew for the big game this Sunday.

The most unprecedented rivalry between the Broncos and Seahawks is going down this Sunday evening, so a celebration is clearly in order. And whether or not you’re a team groupie, it’s evident that after 30 seconds into the first quarter, football fans ultimately value a cold beer over game stats. A shandy provides the perfect balance between the classic American brew and a lighter, citrus sip that pleases us ladies in the room. This beer cocktail will have the whole crowd cheering before the halftime performers even take stage!
