    I do a twist on the original Shanty. I do 1/2 beer,1/2 lemonade,pink lemonade or limeade.

    When I was much younger, 50 or more years ago. A shanty drink was made with beer and stone ginger. I don't think stone ginger is available anymore, so ginger ale has been substituted.

    sounds delicious. much like a beer-garita. 1 part coors light, 1 part tequila, 1 part concentrated limeade (like those frozen minute maid tubes). aand i learned at a bar in canada that a shanty was half gingerale half beer. also surprisingly transcendent:)

    First time I had this was in Punta Cana and I loved it, but bartenders in the states laugh at this.
