This one isn’t really a cocktail so much as it is…beer. But it is still alcohol, so here we go!


Shandy Gaff
Author: 2-in-1 International Recipe Card Collection, 1977
  • Ginger Ale, Iced
  • Beer
  1. Fill highball glass halfway up with ginger ale; fill with beer.
  2. *For a Ginger Gaff, substitute ginger beer for ginger ale
  3. *For Dark Shandy Gaff, substitute dark beer for beer



We decided on a variation of the Shandy Gaff, the Ginger Gaff, since all we had on hand was ginger beer, not ginger ale!


But we did decide to use the Champagne of Beer as our beer choice.



“This is good.”


“Very light and a good ginger flavor. I like it.”

The Verdict: Good

From The Tasting Notes:

Tastes like a light, sweetened beer. Is actually good with Miller High Life. Tastes a bit like the bottled summer shandys, except without that overpowering citrus flavor and a nice ginger flavor instead.
