Behind the Bar: Shady Shandy

Reminder: What’s done in the dark will ALWAYS come to the light. On this week’s all-new episode of Love After Lockup, Michael will learn this lesson the hard way when his shady ways begin to get exposed as Megan comes to town to meet his family. Elsewhere, Scott is trying his hardest to keep his financial troubles a secret from Lizzie by surprising her with a new car. (Because, why not?)

WE’re settling into this juicy episode with a “Shady Shandy” – our take on the classic drink that mixes ice-cold lager with fresh lemon juice and a shot of whiskey. Cheers!

Recipe: Shady Sandy

1 Serving


  • 1 ¼ oz. whiskey
  • ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ oz. simple syrup
  • 8 oz. lager, chilled
  • Lemon wheel, for garnish


In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, combine the whiskey, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Cover and shake vigorously until the shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds. Strain into a mason jar partly filled with ice. Top with lager and gently stir. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
