La Tienda in the Press

Simple Clara

This refreshing and crisp drink, reminiscent of a summer shandy, is well balanced, with a hint of acidity from the lemon soda and body from the Estrella Damm lager. It's perfect on a hot day.

This recipe calls for a porron, which is a communal glass drinking vessel native to Spain. You can order it online via www.latienda.com or buy it locally at Salt & Sundry in Union Market. If you can’t find Estrella Damm, substitute one of two other Spanish lagers, Moritz or Mahou.

4 servings

Ingredients:

12 ounces chilled Estrella Damm lager (may substitute Moritz or Mahou lager)
6 ounces Kas limon soda (may substitute San Pellegrino lemon)
Dash orange bitters (optional)
Directions:

Pour the lager, limon soda and bitters into the porron. Mix by holding the porron by the handle and swishing (rotating at a steady, not-too-fast pace) for 1 minute. Drink right away.
