Guiness Beer boba



  1. Fill a tall, clear container with vegetable oil.
  2. Chill the vegetable oil in the freezer for 30 minutes so it’s cold but not frozen.
  3. While the oil chills, poor 3/4 cup beer into a small saucepan.
  4. Sprinkle 4 grams agar-agar over the top of the beer. Stir to combine.
  5. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, continuing to stir occasionally.
  6. Once the mixture begins to simmer, add 1/4 cup brown sugar.
  7. Continue to stir while the mixture simmers for about 2 minutes -- just enough that it starts to thicken.
  8. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to cool just slightly before adding the remaining 3/4 cup beer.
  9. Collect your vegetable oil from the freezer.
  10. Fill the eye dropper with the agar-agar mixture. Drop agar-agar mixture into the vegetable oil, allowing the drops to fall in different places throughout the glass. Continue filling the eye dropper and dropping the liquid into the vegetable oil.
  11. Use the slotted spoon to collect your Guinness Beer boba. Drop the boba into cool water and give it a gentle stir to help wash away the excess oil.
  12. Using the slotted spoon again (or a fine strainer), strain the beer boba from the water.
  13. Serve in shot glasses with Baileys Irish Cream or on its own in martini glasses.
