Trojan Horse Cocktail Recipe

Guinness and Coke is also known as the Trojan horse, a name that tells you everything you need to know about how to mix it. This summertime classic in the UK is a great way to liven up a dark stout beer and make it fresh and interesting. People who normally cannot handle Guinness find that the Trojan horse is the only way to enjoy it. Quite simply, the Trojan horse is a mixed drink made up of equal parts Guinness Stout and Coke (any cola will do). It’s easy to make and you don’t have to worry about layering it like you would in a black and tan or other popular beer drink. You can sip (slowly) after you pour… I can’t think of a better reason for you not to make this recipe. It’s tasty, refreshing, and easy to make.

Recipe Variations

You can drink a dry stout, such as Murphy’s or Beamish, instead of Guinness, which is a beer mixed with cola. Cola is often served with a flavorful lager in Germany and Poland. If you’re drinking popular Bavarian beer styles like Bock, Pilsner, Oktoberfest or Marzen, and Helles, then you can handle this. As part of the Trojan horse, various liquors are also added. dark, smooth flavors. An amaretto shot, a Tia Maria, or a black currant liqueur such as crème de cassis are all popular options. Drinks like the Irish Black Russian incorporate both the Trojan horse and vodka to create an almost entirely new flavor. Make your own ‘teaser’ by pouring one ounce of vodka and Tia Maria into a pint glass (although Kahlua is also a great option), two ounces of Cola, and three ounces of Guinness.
