Beer lemonade (Radler) with strawberries (vegan)

This is sort of a cocktail (because it contains something alcoholic) but at the same time I would hesitate to call it that because of how little alcohol it actually contains. It resembles a juice more, but with some of the earthy and malty sweetness specific to beer without any of its bitterness (which generally puts me off, which is why I'm not a fan of beer when it's by itself). 
Another reason I wanted to share this with you is that maybe not everyone is familiar with the beer and lemonade combination (in equal parts) which the Germans call Radler. Trust me, it's brilliantly refreshing.
And if you want it to scream "summer!" too, all that needs to be added are some strawberry slices on the edge of the cup. :)
All in all, it's a pretty and tasty way to pleasantly surprise someone (wink) :).

Last year: no cooking because of another kind of bun in the oven :)

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 100 ml light beer
  • 100 ml lemonade
  • 2-3 strawberries

Make the lemonade at home, preferably, according to your own tastes. Combine it with the beer in equal parts and the Radler is done. Slice the strawberries and decorate the rim of the serving cups with them.
It's done, dig in! :)

  3. Ce combinatie speciala! Nu stiu daca as indrazni sa pun si capsuni... sunteti curajosi :-)!

    1. Try it once si daca nu-ti place le poti da jos usor, sunt doar pe marginea paharului, nu in lichid! ;)
