This adult dessert is super simple, requires only two ingredients and almost no time. Sweetening it with vanilla syrup complements the flavor of the beer and makes it sweet and refreshing.


  1. In a large bowl, combine 22 ounces of Guinness (2 bottles) with 1/2 cup vanilla syrup (such as Torani). Pour into a 9-inch square baking dish and freeze until ice crystals form around the edges, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Use a fork to scrape the ice crystals, then continue freezing, scraping every 45 minutes, until the granita is frozen, 3 to 4 more hours. Serve in chilled beer mugs and top with whipped cream.
