Beer before liquor…never been sicker. Liquor before beer…you’re in the clear. So what happens when you mix the two together and drink them at the same time? Well, if you’re using gin and stout…you get a Dog’s Nose.
Dating back to the 19th century, the Dog’s Nose, aptly named because it’s wet and black, was said to be a favorite drink of Charles Dickens. The drink was even featured in one of his most famous works, The Pickwick Papers.
12 ounces stout beer (Guinness)
2 ounces gin
Pour gin into stout glass and top with beer. Simple as that. If you have some lying around, dust the top with a little nutmeg for good measure.
Note: Be sure to use a strong flavored gin so it doesn’t get lost, Beefeater is good.
