The shandy is characterized as a beer that has been mixed with fruit juice or carbonated soft beverage (such as ginger beer or ale). The idea of mixing beer dates far back to the European tradition. In western European nations in particular, it is popular to mix beer together in a variety of different cocktails, most notably lemonade, orange soda, and coca cola. This refreshing mix has a low enough yield of alcohol to be exempt from some laws governing alcoholic beverages in Europe. Another perk of mixing beer with soft drinks is that it ends up being very palatable, light, and ultimately different than your average draught pour.
