Click Clack * – A goblet of Guinness with room for two shot glasses. Fill one shot glass with Jameson’s whiskey. Fill the other shot glass with Bailey's Irish Cream. Carefully drop in the full shot glasses, one at a time (click and clack). Drink it down in one smooth motion, or share it with a friend; tastes like chocolate milk, and gets you stinkin’ drunk.

Colonial Flip - Use a large (32 oz or more) metal or ceramic mug, to allow room for overflow from heating. Pour in an Imperial Pint (20 oz) of strong beer (such as a barleywine or other variety with at least 8% alcohol by volume), 2 tablespoons of unrefined sugar, 1 tablespoon of molasses, and 2 tablespoons of finely ground dried pumpkin, then blend well. Heat an iron poker over fire until red-hot, then briefly quench it in the liquid. Add the rum and enjoy! (Back in Colonial days tavern keepers would concoct all sorts of mixes, some were ghastly. One of the more revered ones was the Flip, a favourite of New Englanders back in the 1700's).

Raddler – Equal parts pilsner beer and lemon-lime soda. (On a hot summer afternoon in June of 1922, Franz Xaver Kugler, the owner of a Gasthaus high in the Deisenhofner Kugler-Alm in Bavaria realized that he did not have enough beer to accomodate all of his guests for the day, both bicyclists as well as mountain hikers. Hence, he decided to offer his remaining beer, as a mixture of beer and lemon-lime soda of which he had an ample supply, and thus he nick-named his newly-found drink after the bicyclists, the "Raddler")

* Note: For concoctions that call for Guinness Stout specifically, the intent is for the Guinness to float on top of and separate from the other type of beer. For proper results, you'll need to use either traditional nitrogenated Guinness draft (from a bar that has a nitrogen tank), or one of several types of canned or bottled Guinness that include an internal automatic release nitrogen capusule (commonly referred to as a "widget"). Fill the bottom half of the glass with the other type of beer first, being careful to produce as little head as possible. Then, place a spoon upside down over the middle of the half-full glass and pour the Guinness over the spoon to equally scatter the stout, and prevent it from mixing with the bottom beer.
