Lemonade is essential for summertime happiness, and consequently, it only reminds me of one thing- clara con limon!
This most amazing beverage is half lemonade concoction and half beer. Needless to say, it is both refreshing and fantastic on a hot summer day. I first came across the clara while traveling to Spain and it quickly became my summer go to. While in Barcelona they use Lemon Fanta, lemonade with sparkling water is an acceptable substitute.
Literally the easiest thing in the world to make:
Beer of choice (works best with beers that aren’t too complex)
Lemon soda (Lemon Fanta)
If lemon soda isn’t available you can use homemade lemonade (lemon juice, water, & sugar) and sparkling water
For the classic (and easy) preparation, mix 2 parts of beer with 1 part of lemon soda.
If making homemade lemonade, mix the juice of 1 lemon with ¾ cup water and sugar to taste.
Mix 2 parts beer 1 part homemade lemonade, and finish with a touch of sparkling water.
I’ll be indulging in these all day to celebrate.
