The Boozy Shake Shack Secret Menu Drink For Arnold Palmer Lovers
By Haldan Kirsch
Many restaurants have their own "secret" menu items, and Shake Shack has gotten in on the fun, launching a secret "Game of Thrones"-themed menu. However, one item that doesn't require you to speak High Valyrian to order is a boozy twist on the Arnold Palmer, known as the shandy.
A shandy is similar to half iced tea, half lemonade Arnold Palmer in that the iced tea is swapped out for something a little boozier — a half-and-half mix of lemonade and beer. Shake Shack worked with Brooklyn Brewery to design its own ShackMeister Ale, which has notes of "bready malt flavor" and a bright, citrusy aroma.
The ShackMeister Ale pairs perfectly with a tall lemonade on a hot day or with your favorite Shackburger. If you're a Shake Shack fan looking to top off your burger with something other than a brew, give its not-so-secret shandy a go.
