Best Beer To Use For Summer Beer

I recommend reaching for a light beer. It doesn’t have to be Bud Light but buying a light beer that isn’t full of other flavors is key. You will mix it with lemonade concentrate and vodka, so you don’t want the beer to be overpowering.

Can I Use Pink Lemonade In Replace Of Regular Lemonade In Summer Brew Recipe

Absolutely! You can use pink lemonade in replace of the lemonade concentrate. You could even use a limeade concentrate, and then add in lime wedges in replace of lemon wedges!

This recipe can be made as strong as you like or as light as you want. Taste and see how you like the recipe. If you want a stronger mix, you might add more beer or vodka to the mix. If you want to lighten it up, add in more lemonade.

Variations To Summer Beer Recipe

  • Add in more or less Vodka to taste (same for Beer and Lemonade). Create a custom summer brew to fit your flavor desires.
  • Swap for Pink Lemonade and add in fresh strawberries and lemon slices.
  • Reach for a Limeade and use fresh lime wedges for garnish.
  • Add in 1-2 cups of lemon-lime soda for a bubbly kick.

Yes, you do need to buy frozen concentrated lemonade. The reason being is the concentrate is a lot sweeter than just a glass of fresh lemonade. If you were to use regular lemonade, you would want to do equal parts of lemonade to beer in the recipe. It might not offer that crisp finish as the concentrate offers.

How Do You Make A Single Serve Summer Brew

Don’t want to serve a crowd? Well, you can make your own single-serve summer brew very easily!

In a glass add 1 can of beer, then add in 1-2 tablespoons of the lemonade concentrate, and then add in a splash of vodka to taste. Top with ice and add in fresh lemon wedges.

With your leftover concentrate, just place in a container and toss in the freezer to use later for more drinks.

Also, if you love lemon, try my lemon muffins.

Can you freeze what’s leftover


Tuesday 14th of July 2020

Hey Tammy! I have never tried freezing it. I would think that the vodka might prevent it from fully freezing like you might want. You can always half the recipe or shrink it down if you want to make what you only plan to drink.
