Jamaican Guinness punch is a delightful late night beverage that has officially left the island and landed on the American coast. It's been growing in popularity and is now a staple of many tropical-themed bars. Making this when entertaining at home means you're on top of the latest drink trends and it will really impress your guests. In the recipes below, we've added a hint of coffee to enhance the rich, dark flavor of the beer. And if you'd like to recreate the flavors without the beer, scroll to the bottom of the page for a non-alcoholic version of the recipe. This is truly one to add to your coffee recipe list.

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces Guinness beer
