MillerCoors is backing the cocktails

MillerCoors has teamed up with US burger restaurant Red Robin to launch two on-trade “beer cocktails”.

Coors Light and Blue Moon Can-Crafted Cocktails are being served in a reusable beer can and “are a unique combination of beer and liquor”, Red Robin said this week. The Coors Light serving is mixed with ginger liqueur, lemonade and fresh lemon, while Blue Moon comes with vodka, orange juice and fresh lime juice.

“My vision for the can-crafted cocktails was to craft a craveable adult beverage in a one-of-a-kind glass that would catch the eye and act as a conversation piece for our guests,” Red Robin mixologist Donna Ruch said.

The beer cocktails will be available at participating Red Robins through the summer.

Last month, MillerCoors reported a slight drop in profits in Q1 despite a rise in sales.
