The Shandygaff, a favorite of Charles Dickens, is an interesting English twist on the original Radler or Shandy. Feel free to experiment with the ratios and throw in a dash or two or orange bitters, lemon juice, or other citrus flavors to round out the profile. Be sure to use a good English bitter or pub ale and a strong, spicy ginger beer (not ginger ale, mind you).

How to make a Shandygaff
- Fill a pint glass or stein halfway with the beer, then fill the rest of the way with the ginger beer.
