1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 medium onion, minced
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon horseradish sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
pinch cayenne

Instructions

1. Pour beer into a glass and allow it to go flat for at least an hour (Image 1).
2. Place all ingredients except beer into food processor. Pulse a few times to completely mix ingredients (Image 2).
3. Pour flat beer through chute while processor is running. Blend for 2-3 minutes or until smooth and creamy.
4. Transfer to an airtight container and place in refrigerator for 1-2 days before eating.
