(Another) Guinness Punch recipe
Another version of the Guinness Punch recipe, this one from Rachel Rappaport, binds Caribbean flavors for an alternative way to enjoy the famous Irish stout. It tastes a lot like Chai Tea, only with a hint of the malty bitterness of the Guinness.
- 12 oz cold Guinness stout
- 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1/16 teaspoon cocoa
- 1/16 teaspoon allspice
- 1/16 teaspoon cinnamon
- Crushed ice cubes, to serve
In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the cocoa, allspice, and cinnamon to remove any clumps. Then pour the Guinness into a large cup (larger than you'd think, this will foam) and gently stir in the spiced condensed milk. Serve immediately. Serves one.
