This special tool is designed specifically creating the perfect black and tan. In order to create this drink, you need Guinness and a pale lager (Bass is typically used at most pubs). Here's how to make a proper Bland and Tan:
1. First you fill a pint glass (we recommend a tulip pint glass) half way with the pale lager.
2. Then you place this spoon over the rim of the glass. The spoon has a curve in the handle so it rests nicely on the lip of the glass - freeing your hands to pour beer.
3. With the spoon in place, slowly pour Guinness over the inverted bowl of the spoon (keyword is SLOWLY). The Guinness will cascade over the spoon and gently floats on top of the lager. This creates not only a visually appealing drink but this unique mixture of beers is very tasty.
The spoon is made from long lasting and easy to clean stainless steel. This bar tool can be used to make not only black and tans but also countless variants of this drink including:
