Beer cocktail

Beer cocktail
A shot glass containing Midori was dropped into a glass of shandy, making a fairly potent beer cocktail.

A beer cocktail is a cocktail that is made by mixing beer with a distilled beverage. In this type of cocktail, the primary ingredient is beer. A mixture of beer with a beverage that does not contain distilled alcohol is called a shandy.
