It’s where a mini Corona gets overturned and emptied into a margarita

Iconic Mexican beer Corona—what with its golden colour, light zesty flavour and hand-painted bottle that’s always served topped with a freshly squeezed lime—has expanded its family.

Introducing Corona’s little brother, the Coronita, a smaller 210ml bottle of Corona beer (compared to the regular 335ml one) that tastes exactly the same as its bigger counterpart, but made specially for beer lovers who enjoy having their brews ice cold. The smaller volume means you’re more likely to finish before the beer reaches room temperature.

And launching in tandem is the CoronaRita, where a mini Corona beer bottle gets overturned and drained into a glass of margarita. The result is a boozy and refreshing drink that’s perfect for starting a big night.

Here are six bars in Singapore where you can get your hands on some Coronita and CoronaRita (it’s a tongue twister to say, we know).
