Meyer Lemon Ginger Beer Rock Shandy

1 cup Meyer lemon juice (from about 7 lemons)
4 cups very cold water
3 tablespoons liquid turbinado sugar, simple syrup or agave nectar
3 cups ginger beer
1/2 teaspoon bitters


In a medium pitcher, stir together the lemon juice, water, syrup until fully incorporated. Carefully stir in the ginger beer. Sprinkle with bitters. Serve immediately. 

My thoughts:
A rock shandy is a non-alcoholic version of a shandy (which is beer mixed with lemonade or soda) frequently made with citrus fruit. I've been on a big ginger beer kick lately so I thought I'd try it with sweet-tart Meyer lemons. It was great, really refreshing but not terribly summery.
