These are individual servings of Guinness stout beer flavored gelatin, which is served in mini beer taster glasses and topped with Baileys Irish cream liquor, making them look just like a freshly poured glass of beer.

  • 1 (.25-oz) package unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tbsp  hot water
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 (11-oz) bottle Guinness stout beer
  • Baileys Irish Cream liquor


  1. In a small bowl, add gelatin and hot water and mix with a small whisk until all of the gelatin powder is dissolved. The mixture should be thick, clear, and smooth. 

  2. In a medium pot over medium heat, scrape in gelatin, beer, sugar and bring to a boil, stirring until gelatin is fully dissolved (this should only take 15-30 seconds). You should taste and see if you need to add more sugar. I did 1/4 cup but if you want to lessen the bitter flavor even more, you can add some more sugar.
  3. While gelatin is hot, pour into individual mini glasses with the help of a funnel, filling them up about halfway. I used 5 oz beer taster glasses. Place glasses into the fridge to set, about 2 hours. Keep jello in fridge until ready to serve. Right before serving, pour a small layer of cold Irish cream liquor on top, to resemble the beer foam. The cream also acts as a syrup topping for the gelatin. Serve cold.
