“ Beer and pizza is a classic combination, this beer shandy takes pizza night to a new level. This refreshing mix of beer and lime is a delicious compliment to your favorite pie. Alexa, Recipe Hunter ”
You could go the Italian route and drink your pizza with a glass of vino, but why not switch it up for the other classic combo: pizza and beer? This cocktail is bright and fresh-just in time for the spring. A shandy is usually a mixture of beer and sparkling lemonade, but Katie puts on twist on this classic cocktail and adds bitters, white rum, and a splash of clarified lime juice. Although this drink is delicious on its own, the acidity from the lime helps cut the richness of the pizza, making it a great choice for pizza night.

“ Cooking is my creative outlet, and I'm always looking for ways to push my boundaries in the kitchen. I find food inspiration everywhere, from my garden, to the weather, to my travels, and I continually incorporate that into my recipes. ”
Katie is the consultant-by-day and blogger-by-night behind Katie at the Kitchen Door where she shares her seasonal recipes, cookbook reviews, and stories of travel and adventure. Other than the drool-worthiness of her photos (which are stunning), what we especially love about Katie’s cooking style is that she absorbs all she can from her surroundings and puts her own unique twists on classic recipes. This is the kind of food that leaves us inspired by constantly keeping things interesting, fresh, seasonal, and comforting.
