If you're a beer lover, you can enjoy your passion even more by incorporating your favorite beer flavors into your next cooking experiment. Beer can be included in recipes for meat marinades, frying batter, chili, soups, bread and even dessert. And if you're concerned about getting drunk from these recipes, fear not—most of the alcohol will evaporate in the cooking process. But your dish will be left with a rich, earthy flavor that can only come from beer.
If getting tipsy is the point, there's always the alcoholic update to the classic root beer float—one generous scoop of vanilla ice cream drenched in your favorite stout in a pint glass.
