Wikipedia

  1. Shandy

    Shandy is beer or cider mixed with a lemon or a lemon-lime flavored beverage. The citrus beverage, often called lemonade, may or may not be carbonated. The proportions of the two ingredients are adjusted to taste but are usually half lemonade and half beer/cider, resulting in a lower ABV for the finished drink. Shandies are popular in the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Canada (where they are sometimes known by the French name Panaché). In some jurisdictions, the low alcohol content of shandies exempts them from laws governing the sale of alcoholic beverages.

  1. Shandy

    A shandy, or shandygaff, is beer mixed with citrus-flavored soda, carbonated lemonade, ginger beer, ginger ale, or cider. The proportions of the two ingredients are adjusted to taste, usually half-and-half. Nonalcoholic shandies are known as "rock shandies". A shandy containing beer and cider is called a snakebite. In some parts of the United Kingdom, the word "shandy" is also used colloquially as a euphemism for "alcoholic drink". To say someone "had a few shandies" does not necessarily mean he drank shandies exclusively, or at all. Rather, it is implied that he drank a large quantity of alcohol. In some jurisdictions, the low alcohol content of shandies makes them exempt from laws governing the sale of alcoholic beverages.
