Hopped Grapefruit Radler Recipe

A radler recipe that’s as carefree as summer itself.

Making a radler

Fresh grapefruit juice and lemon soda, paired with the added dimension of a citrus-forward IPA is pretty much a no-brainer.

A traditional radler is beer blended with lemonade, sparkling lemonade, or lemon-lime soda and was originally conceptualized in 1922 when a German innkeeper named Franz Kugler found an ingenious way to stretch his beer supply for a herd of bikers who unexpectedly arrived after a long ride from Munich.

With low ABV (usually only 2% – 4.5%) enjoy kicking back a few a super hot day. Pre biking session not required.

    Love the idea of this, and will certainly try it, but either the “Yields 1 Beer Cocktail” or your measurements seem to be way off. With the quantities listed, you’d be looking at a drink that would be at least 24 ounces – a good bit larger than the pint glass shown. I’ll have to play with the quantities and give it a shot.
