This light, yet complex fruit shandy made with mango peach salsa, a bit of sugar, and freshly squeezed lemon will have you thinking twice about what beer can do in a cocktail. Serve this number with fresh wedges of mango and chili powder to up the heat!

The best salsas for beer cocktails

The best salsas for beer cocktails are the small-batch kind found in the grab-and-go refrigerated cases in the deli section of the grocery store. I find the bold, flavorful ingredients blend the best and give a great pop to the cold, fizzy tang of the beer. No measuring is involved either -- just peel the lid off and plop the pint in the blender.
