In one of the great culinary mash-ups of the year, this beer cocktail falls somewhere between a shandy, a margarita, and a radler. You can juice your own fresh grapefruits for the pitcher, or look for the fresh-squeezed cartons of juice in the produce section; check the ingredient list to be sure there’s no added sugar. Serve with a half-salted rim, if you’d like, or omit the salt for a straight-up refreshing sipper.
