A copper pot filled with beef and Guinness pie topped with puff pastry on a towel on a cooking rack with a bottle behind it.

Beef and Guinness Pie

Essentially Irish stew with some lovely store-bought puff pastry plopped on top. Easy peasy. And actually, quite elegant.

Two glasses filled with Mexican blood Mary, some lime wedges, a mostly empty bottle of Corona, and a bottle of Tabsco on its side.

Mexican Bloody Mary

Call it what you will, this cocktail is equal parts Mexican Bloody Mary, riff on a michelada, and a simple but satisfying tomato beer.
