Cocktail Recipe: Monaco

New drink of the summer! Le Garage introduced us to the Monaco, a refreshing beer spritzer that is perfect for a sunny brunch while watching Tour de France.

To make it at home, combine two parts Stella Artois with 1 part sprite (or soda water with lemonade) and a splash of grenadine. It's not at all as sweet as you'd expect.

Funny timing--I drank a beer called a "Shandy" over the weekend that involved lemonade in the brewing process, I think? At any rate, I got home and tried to recreate it--I used about two parts Anchor Steam summer ale and one part sparkling lemonade. Perfect for a summer afternoon!

Oh man, my husband and I drank so many of these when we were in Provence during the summer. Delicious!

I used to drink Monacos at the bowling alley when living in France ... yumm!

Marydaily, a Shandy is a British classic with ale, and then you add 'lemonade' (not like N. American, but 7-Up or Sprite) afterward, half and half or to your taste. Your fancy lemonade sounds delish but it can be much more lowbrow, haha!

Tchin tchin!
