Grilled Lemon Shandy Recipe
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp ginger, minced
- 4 medium lemons, halved
- 1 lemon, sliced thick
- 1 tbsp sugar (for sprinkling the lemons)
- 6 pack of beer, something light, without any aggressive flavors
Combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water and the minced ginger in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes until sugar is dissolved. Cool completely.
Preheat the SIZZLE ZONE side burner on your Napoleon Grills Prestige P500 RSIB, set to medium high heat. Sprinkle the cut sides of the lemons with a little sugar. Place them cut side down directly on the side burner.
Grill the halved and sliced lemons until slightly charred. Juice the halved lemons (save the slices for garnish), you’ll need 1/2 cup of juice, total, then chill the juice.
Combine the simple syrup and lemon juice. For every 12 oz or beer, add 1/4 cup of the lemon/simple syrup mixture. Serve cold, in a glass, with or without ice. Garnish the glass with the sliced grilled lemon.
