“Black Christmas” Beer Cocktail

1 part Guinness Stout
1 part Your Favorite Christmas Ale

Slowly pour the Christmas Ale down the inside wall of a beer stein. (Pouring in this manner will reduce the chance of the beer forming a head – which you don’t want on this layer.) Then, gently pour the Guinness over the back of a spoon, and over the Christmas Ale. This will give you a tan layer, topped with a black layer.

Cranberry Mojito

8 oz. fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
20 mint leaves
2 tbsp. lime juice
4 oz. rum
4-6 oz. soda water

Place cranberries, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Then lower the heat to medium-low and continue to cook for about 10 minutes, before your berries start bursting. Remove from heat.

Once the berry mixture has cooled, you can strain them. If you prefer, you can keep the mixture in the fridge for a couple hours or overnight before straining.

Put about 10 leaves of mint and a tbsp. of lime juice in each glass. With the back of a wooden spoon or a muddler mash the mint up.

Put ice in each glass and pour 2 oz. of the cranberry syrup and 2 oz. rum into each glass.

Top off each glass with soda water and sprinkle some fresh cranberries in for garnish.
