Germans and Austrians call it a "radler." Biker beer is a rough translation which obviously does not refer to Harley riders. Didn't seem necessary here during the great era of piss-water American beers, but might be some interesting options.

Old Chub and Simply Lemonade - sounds kinky.

I would suggest Wild Turkey American Honey for cider. Be careful though, it is dangerously good. Perfect for cold weather trips, but probably still pretty good when it's hot.

I like filling one of those five gallon igloo water dispensers with either vodka and lemonade or margaritas with a block of ice. If you rig it so people can paddle up to the boat and fill there glass you will be very popular
Pool and a pond... Pond be good for you.

Summer Brew is damn tasty - Mix all together in a water cooler/dispenser. Case of beer, a couple frozen limeade/lemonade concentrates, and a handle of vodka. Can add more or less beer to get the right mixture.

But whiskey is always a close travel companion.

OK, so it's come to my attention that not everyone knows what an orange beer is. Only the best hangover cure ever in all of life. And a pretty good river drink to boot. Drink down a utilitarian beer about 40% then top off with orange juice. My personal favorite is Coors Heavy and Simply Orange. So tasty. So refreshing. Solves the problem of "how am I going to get a beer down to get the cat shit taste out of my mouth."
Dude, I'd see you on the river but I'm hardly ever out there.
