The Radler

One of my favorite summer drinks is a mixture that brings on looks of confusion and sometimes, downright revulsion. It's very refreshing, though.

Here's the recipe:
Fill a Pilsner glass or beer mug half way with beer.
Pour Sprite in and fill to the top.

That's right. Half beer and half Sprite. In Germany, it's called a Radler (Rrrod-ler) and can be found in restaurants and bars all over the Alps. I understand the British and the French have their own version of this curious mixture.

The surprising part is the taste. The beer cuts the sweetness of the Sprite and the result is simply delicious. No ice needed, but it's best served cold.
