Red Robin Rolls Out Can-Crafted Beer Cocktails
If they aren't craft beer, they will be after a bartender's crafty touch.

This isn't the first time they've stepped beyond the beer comfort zone. Last October they introduced limited-time-only beer milkshakes in honor of Oktoberfest.
Miami currently has one Red Robin restaurant, located at The Falls Shopping Center in Palmetto Bay and it already has the cocktails on the menu.
There are two options: a Coors Light cocktail blended with Coors Light, ginger liqueur and lemonade topped with fresh-squeezed lemons; and a Blue Moon cocktail mixed with Svedka Clementine Vodka, orange juice and fresh lime juice. Both go for $4.99 each. (You can buy the signature cans for $5.)
This beer itself may not please your craft beer palate, but the refreshing transformation may be what you need to on a hot summer day in Miami. Blue Moon itself is typically served with a slice of orange or lemon. There are typically two ways to drink a Coors Light: shotgunning a can, or slowly swigging it while closing your eyes and pretending it's an energy drink. It might also taste like carbonated fruit juice if you let it go warm.
The beer cocktails at Red Robin are not a first for the mixology department, but they are a first for the nationally popular restaurant chain. Expect more to come.
