These are 5 of the Best Recipes with Beer

1. Beer Cheese

You can’t have a list of the best recipes with beer without Beer Cheese! It’s the beer cheeseperfect thing to dip pretzels in. I always enjoy making this dip when I’m going to watch a football game or am having people over. It’s always easy to grab a bag of hard pretzels, but I love pairing this cheesy dip with soft pretzels. You can usually get them in the frozen section of the grocery store, or make your own!

2. Beer and Honey BBQ Chicken Skewers

Beer makes an excellent marinade! If you want tender meats, consider putting beer in the marinade so the enzymes can begin to break it down. In these Beer and Honey BBQ Chicken Skewers, the flavor of the beer goes perfectly with the sweetness of the honey and the tang of the barbecue.

3. Bacon Beer Cheese Stromboli

Like beer cheese? Put it in Stromboli! This Bacon Beer Cheese Stromboli is the perfect way to get your beer cheese fix. It has an excellent, separate recipe for the beer cheese to add to the dough. Or, you could always whatever beer cheese you have left over! The bacon in this dish adds the perfect salty finish.

4. Beer Bread

Beer Bread is a delicious and simple quick bread. With minimal ingredients, it is very easy to make. The flavor the beer brings compliments the taste of the bread! My favorite part about this recipe is that it calls for melted butter poured over the bread. Yum!

5. Pimento Beer Cheese

pimento beer cheesePimento Beer Cheese combines two of my favorite cheese dips: pimento cheese and beer. The beer flavor really kicks this recipe up a notch. You have salty, sweet, and spicy all in one dip. My favorite way to eat this? With flat pretzels or put it on top of a burger!

Rosemary sprigs for garnishes

Cranberry is my favorite fruit of the holiday season. We see it during Thanksgiving with the cranberry sauce, and somehow it makes its way through the rest of the holidays. This gin-based drink is one of the easiest holiday drink ideas– just combine the ingredients, then shake or stir depending on your preferences. It even comes with an adorable garnish idea; push a sprig of rosemary through a fresh cranberry, then place on top.

3. Boozy Bubbly Sherbet Punch

A classic sherbet punch is one of my favorites for a party! The great thing about punch is that you can put nearly anything in it and it will still taste amazing. Go by this recipe for Boozy Bubbly Sherbet Punch or give it a holiday twist. Instead of the lemonade, try cranberry juice then float fresh cranberries on top!

4. Cranberry Vanilla Mock Sangria

If you’re looking for a mock alcoholic beverage this holiday season, this Cranberry Vanilla Mock Sangria will do the trick. Spice things up with this fancy drink everyone will love, including the kids! This particular recipe calls for apples and cranberries as the sangria fruit, but I always find the more the merrier. Some orange slices would probably go great in there, too!

5. Mocha Nog
