Springtime Beer Cocktail #1

It's practically spring in YYC.  This means it's only a matter of time before the outdoor patios open and we can resume our drinking outside.  Why is it that an adult beverage tastes better when you are sitting outdoors?  Is it the people watching?  The condensation that forms on your perfectly chilled glass working against the heat of the sun?  Or, the fact that we are getting a daily dose of vitamin D in non-pill form?  Whatever the reason, @ the first sign of spring, break out the patio furniture, slap on some sunscreen, and take the rest of the afternoon off work!
Sadly the outdoor patios are still closed, but at least this cocktail tastes like summer.  It's a margarita, how could it not?  This recipe comes from the good people @ MolsonCoors who not only supplied the recipe, but they were generous enough to supply the beer too!  I love beer, so does my husband.  Molson you've made two happy campers out of a couple YYC'ers.  Cheers!

Coastal Surf Margarita

1 oz. tequila
1 oz. lime juice
1 oz. orange syrup
1/2 tsp chopped chili peppers
3 oz Corona beer
lime wheel garnish

To a blender add 1 cup of ice, tequila, lime juice, orange syrup & chopped peppers.  Blend and pour into a margarita glass.  Add 3 oz. beer and garnish with lime.

I also added a couple drops of green food coloring to make it a little pretty.
