FAQ's

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content in a Full House compare to a typical stout beer?

The Full House cocktail has an alcohol content of 3.01%, which is lower than most stout beers. Typical stout beers have an alcohol content ranging from 4% to 8%. The lower alcohol content in the Full House is due to the addition of vanilla ice cream and egg white, which dilutes the beer.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute the stout in a Full House cocktail for another type of beer?

Yes, you can substitute stout with another type of dark beer, such as a porter, if desired. However, the unique flavor profile of stout, which often includes notes of coffee and chocolate, is key to the Full House cocktail's character. Substituting it with a lighter beer might significantly alter the taste.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve a Full House?

The Full House cocktail is best served in a highball glass, cold but not shaken or stirred. The highball glass complements its ingredients by providing enough space for the ice cream to mix gently with the stout, creating a creamy texture. It's ideal to add the ingredients directly to the glass in the order listed, allowing them to naturally combine.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is the Full House cocktail not shaken or stirred?

The Full House cocktail is not shaken or stirred to maintain the integrity of its ingredients. Shaking or stirring would overly agitate the stout, causing it to foam excessively and lose its carbonation. Gently combining the ingredients in the glass preserves the creamy texture and the intended subtlety of flavors.

DIETARY_CONSIDERATIONS

Is the Full House cocktail suitable for a gluten-free diet?

The Full House cocktail contains stout, which is traditionally made from barley, a source of gluten. Therefore, it's not suitable for a gluten-free diet unless a gluten-free stout is used. Always check the label of your stout to ensure it complies with your dietary requirements.
