Happy Hour @ 1102

Dandy Shandy

Now, I’m not a beer drinker, which is why this is probably the first beer based drink on Happy Hour @ 1102.   But if I do drink beer, I prefer a dark beer.  So this recipe joined with my favored ginger beer, sounded like a good combination.  We’ll see . . .

Dandy Shandy


  • ounces good quality dark stout or porter beer (or nonalcoholic beer) (1/2 cup)
  • ounces chilled ginger ale or ginger beer (1/2 cup)


Place dark stout beer in a serving glass.

Pour ginger ale atop. Makes 1 (8-ounce) serving.
