Crafting Refreshing Beer Recipes

Guinness Black and Tan:


  • (Guinness) Stout

  • Pale ale or lager (Bass Pale Ale is a traditional choice)


  • Pint glass

  • Spoon (preferably a Black and Tan spoon, but a regular teaspoon can work)


  1. Chill the Beer: Ensure both your Guinness and pale ale are well chilled. This helps maintain the distinct layers when pouring.

  2. Pour the Pale Ale: Fill the pint glass just under half full with pale ale. Pour gently to minimize foam.

  3. Prepare to Layer the Guinness: Place a spoon upside down over the glass, just touching the surface of the pale ale. The back of the spoon will help disperse the stout and keep the layers separate.

  4. Pour the Guinness: Slowly pour the Guinness over the back of the spoon. Aim to pour it gently so it trickles onto the surface of the pale ale without mixing. Fill the glass to your desired level.

  5. Admire Your Handiwork: If poured correctly, you should see a distinct layer of dark Guinness stout atop the lighter ale.

  6. Enjoy: Serve immediately and enjoy the visual appeal before mixing the layers as you drink.


  • Pouring speed and the angle of the spoon are critical for maintaining distinct layers.

  • Practice makes perfect. Don't worry if your first few attempts don't result in perfect layers; it can take a little practice to get it just right.

Beer Margarita:


  • 1 can or bottle of light beer (like Corona or any pale lager)

  • 1/2 cup of tequila

  • 1/3 cup of lime juice (freshly squeezed for the best flavor)

  • 1/4 cup of orange liqueur (such as Triple Sec or Cointreau)

  • Ice cubes

  • Salt for rimming the glass

  • Lime wedges for garnish


  • Pitcher

  • Stirring spoon

  • Margarita or pint glasses


  1. Prepare the Glasses:

    • Rub a lime wedge around the rim of each glass.

    • Dip the rim in salt to coat it lightly.

    • Fill the glasses with ice cubes.

  2. Mix the Drink:

    • In a pitcher, combine the tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur. Stir well to mix.

    • Slowly pour the beer into the pitcher, trying not to disturb the carbonation too much. Stir gently to combine.

  3. Serve:

    • Pour the Beergarita mixture into the prepared glasses.

    • Garnish each glass with a lime wedge on the rim.

  4. Enjoy:

    • Serve immediately and enjoy the refreshing mix of flavors.


  • For a frozen variation, blend the tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur, and a handful of ice in a blender until smooth, then stir in the beer gently and serve in chilled, salt-rimmed glasses.

  • Adjust the lime juice or tequila according to your taste preferences.

  • For a sweeter Beergarita, you can add a splash of simple syrup or agave nectar.



  • 1 cold light Mexican beer (such as Corona, Modelo, or Pacifico)

  • The juice of 1 lime (more for rimming the glass)

  • 2 dashes of hot sauce (like Tabasco)

  • 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 dash of soy sauce (optional, for a deeper umami flavor)

  • A pinch of salt

  • A pinch of ground black pepper

  • Tajín seasoning or chili powder (for rimming the glass)

  • Ice cubes


  • Tall glass (pint glass or similar)

  • Small plate (for rimming)

  • Stirring spoon


  1. Prepare the Glass:

    • Pour some Tajín seasoning or chili powder onto a small plate.

    • Rub a lime wedge around the rim of the glass to moisten it.

    • Dip the rim of the glass into the seasoning to coat it well.

  2. Mix the Michelada:

    • Squeeze the juice of one lime into the glass.

    • Add the hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce (if using), salt, and black pepper.

    • Stir the mixture with a spoon to mix well.

  3. Add Ice and Beer:

    • Fill the glass with ice cubes to about halfway.

    • Slowly pour the beer into the glass over the ice, letting it mix gently with the rest of the ingredients.

  4. Garnish and Serve:

    • Give the Michelada a gentle stir to ensure everything is combined.

    • Garnish with a lime wedge on the rim of the glass.

    • Serve immediately and enjoy!


  • Adjust the amount of lime juice, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce according to your taste preferences. Some like it hotter or tangier!

  • Experiment with different beers; while light beers are traditional, some might enjoy the depth added by amber or darker beers.

Black Velvet:


  • Stout beer (like Guinness)

  • Champagne or a good quality sparkling wine


  • Champagne flute or a tall glass


  1. Chill the Ingredients: Make sure both the stout and the Champagne are well chilled.

  2. Pour the Stout: Fill the glass about halfway with stout.

  3. Add the Champagne: Slowly top the stout with Champagne. The trick to maintaining a distinct layer between the stout and Champagne is to pour it over the back of a spoon or very gently down the side of the glass to prevent too much mixing.


  • Serve immediately to enjoy the creamy texture of the stout with the crispness of the Champagne.


  • The traditional ratio for a Black Velvet is equal parts stout and Champagne, but you can adjust according to your taste preferences.

  • For a twist, some people add a shot of blackcurrant liqueur to make it a "Velvet Royale."
