St. Patrick's Day Shandy

Shandys made healthy -  sans all the food coloring and calories
March 17, 2021

Thinking of ways to drink a bit healthier this St Patricks Day? Traditionally it has been full green (food-colored) beer or Shandies full of sugary lemonade or Sprite. Instead, we have found a way to replace all that with AVEC. Our Yuzu & Lime has no calories or sugar and our Jalapeño and Blood Orange has sub 20 calories/4g of sugar per can.

Side note: We think Shandies are gonna be the next wave of  drinks – think about the time where the world just caught on to the idea of a "spritz." The Shandy is going to have its time soon!

AVEC SOUR SHANDY
Pilsner*
avec 
Yuzu & Lime 
*We used Threes Brewing Kicking & Screaming Fermented Pilsner which has notes of "Soft Minerals, Saazy, Nilla Wafers, Golden, Refined." We love how its crisp tastes pairs with citrus of our Yuzu & Lime. It creates a sour beer-like taste that is approachable.
AVEC SPICY SHANDY
Lager**
avec 
Jalapeño & Blood Orange
**We went with Helles Lager from Folksbier, it is unfiltered and fruity paired well with the juicy spice of our Jalapeño & Blood Orange. Turns out the combo is dangerously light and way too drinkable.
For one glass pour 3 parts beer and 1 part AVEC.
Really we recommend sharing with friends so for a big serve, pour out a full can of AVEC and full pint of beer and you have a great low sugar drink to celebrate the day.

How my trips to Thailand led to the creation of AVEC Grapefruit & Pomelo.
There is nothing better than a fresh, sharp paloma. But what if you could have a paloma or grapefruit juice that wasn’t stuffed full of sugar? This is where we begun our journey for the perfect grapefruit soda. The solution was found in the memories of my trips to Thailand where I learned of a punchy relative of the grapefruit: the Pomelo.
