A radler, which means “cyclist” in German, is a 50/50 mix of beer and fruit soda that was concocted to slake the thirst of tourists on bikes in the 1900s. Elora Borealis is a North American-style pale ale with hop flavours like pineapple and citrus, so mixing small amounts of tropical fruit juices like mango and pineapple brightens the hop profile without watering down the beer and dampening its lovely flavours. Pick up any North American-style Pale Ale if Elora Borealis isn’t available.

½ cup (125 mL) mango juice
½ cup (125 mL) pineapple juice
1 bottle Elora Borealis
½ cup (125 mL) soda water
Fresh or canned pineapple

1. Combine mango and pineapple juices. Pour ½ cup (125 mL) juice mixture into each glass. Add 1 cup (250 mL), half the bottle, beer to each glass. Top with a ¼ cup (60 mL) soda water. Garnish with a wedge of pineapple.
