Summer is coming to a close so we’d like to leave you with one last refreshing yet tangy recipe for a sangria-type drink, get this, made with beer! We love our union-made beer.

Make this beer sangria for a Labor Day BBQ or enjoy anytime throughout the year!

As always, our recipes are designed to be prepared with union-made ingredients and support unionized grocery stores.

Beer Sangria

•    Ingredients – purchase from your local unionized grocery store

o    2 pears, peeled and chopped
o    1 cup plus 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
o    4 12-ounce bottles of union-made lager of your choice, chilled
o    1 cup triple sec
o    Ice

•    Instructions

o    In a food processor or blender, combine the pears with the 2 tbsp of lemon juice and puree
o    Pour the beer into a pitcher and stir the remaining 1 cup of lemon juice, the triple sec and the pear puree
