Before You Start

You should allow the dip to rest in the refrigerator for at least one day, but two days is ideal. It will look loose when you finish blending, but it will harden back up after being refrigerated.

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.
