There are few better ways to cool down this summer other than turning your favorite Irish tipple into a refreshing summer punch. This recipe by 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. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Per drink
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

Directions:
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.
