Nothing says summer like sitting outdoors (in your back garden or a beer garden, what matters is you’re outdoors, in Ireland, without ten layers on) with a Corona Extra and lime. Yes, we have heard that if it’s not broke, don’t fix it, and as unbeatable as Corona Extra and lime is, we’ve created three fun, alternative ways try your Corona Extra this summer. Why not try a Corona Extra Beach Mojito, Corona Extra Ice Pop or Corona Extra Margarita?

Check out this perfect summer playlist (the background soundtrack to your Corona Extra Mojito, Margarita, and Ice Pop Party); these life hacks to keep your make up fresh this summer from festivals to the beach and these tips on lightening up and embracing positive vibes in the sunshine.
