?Or perhaps you should substitute the shenanigans for a simple Shandy…

With patio weather here to stay in most parts of the country, this refreshing drink will keep you calm, cool and collected as you enjoy the evening sunsets, swatting flies and the wafting smoke of your outdoor grill.

First concocted in the UK, this half-beer, half-carbonated lemon soda mixture is refreshing and easy on the palate to even beer un-enthusiasts.

Other variations include:

Shandygaff: Half beer, half ginger ale or ginger beer

Monaco: Half beer, half lemon soda, splash of grenadine

Lager top: 90 percent lager, 10 percent lemonade or lemon juice
