Cocktails on the Tom Dunne Show: Gin Shandy

Oisin Davis has coined this month 'Febrewary' and brings us some new cocktails made with beer...

This week, Oisin Davis of Great Irish Beverages introduces us to the Gin Shandy.

Oisin says: "After "Ginuary" we have a new theme for this month's set of drinks. Say hello to "Febrewary" folks - where every Thursday we'll be making a cocktail made with beer. Because, why the hell not?

"Tonight's installment is a real crowd pleaser as it combines a citrus driven gin, fresh orange juice and a real sessionable lager. The flavour profile is very much reminiscent of another beverage we're all very familiar with, the classic shandy".

INGREDIENTS

35ml Dingle Gin

70 ml fresh orange juice

70 ml Heineken

METHOD 

Fill a slim Jim glass with some ice. Pour the gin and orange juice into a shaker with ice. Seal it and shake it hard for 10 seconds. Strain the shaker into the glass and top up with the lager. Garnish with an orange slice.
