  2. Pour half a pint of beer into a glass.
  3. Pour either 125ml of Soju or 2 Shots. Stir well.
  4. Bonus: A Korean trick by using chopsticks to mix; put 1 chopsticks at each end of the cup, and bring them together fast in a clapping motion so the liquid and gas from the beer stirs by itself.

Recommended Item: ToTT Copper Plated Heavy Jigger

2. Espresso Stout

Go bold with this creamy concoction that brings out the intense coffee aroma and deep roasted malt. Pair this thirst quencher with a Seafood Pie for an extra ooomph. Definitely a favourite for those looking for intensity and richness in their drinks!

  2. Shake the mixture and strain it into a salted pint glass.
  3. Flip a Corona upside down and place it into the drink
  4. Enjoy as the Corona dispenses slowly into your Coronarita!

Recommended Item: ToTT Copper Plated 2-Piece Cocktail Shaker

4. Beer Găo

Time for a recipe created right here in Singapore ! You’ve probably heard people at your hawker centres ordering their Coffee through terms like Kopi O Kosong, Kopi Xiu Dai, or even Kopi Gao! But did you know you can order a BeerGao too?! This local favourite is a simple concoction that combines the refreshing zest of lager and deep nutty flavours of stout.

  1. Pour ½ pint of lager beer into glass. 
  2. Pour ½ pint of stout into a glass and stir.
  3. Sit back, relax.
  4. Bonus: Test your local hawker’s level of customer service and just shout “Beer Gao!”; chances are, they’ll bring you exactly what you need!
