Happy Monday- I hope you all had an amazing weekend!  I’m in full on Summer-mode with air-dried hair, a solid tan (plus a million freckles), and a laissez faire attitude about my days.  I want to squeeze as much summery goodness into the next couple of months and these lemon shandys are high on the list.  They are SO tasty!!!   And aren’t these glasses so adorable?  Another amazing find by Farra!  Hope you love these as much as I do!  xx- Sarah  {This post was produced in collaboration with Sarah Dickenson for A House in the Hills}

    I have been on such a big cocktail kick this summer, too! I don’t know what it is about this summer in particular, but it just begs for relaxed days and cocktails on the patio. I will have to try this out, because one of my favorite beers is hefeweizen.

    Thanks for the inspiration!
