Raglan Road Guinness Dipping sauce can be found at the Raglan Road located in Downtown Disney this sauce goes perfectly with Irish soda bread.
One of the best parts of eating at the Raglan Road is enjoying homemade Irish soda bread with their well-known Guinness dipping sauce. The Guinness dipping sauce is a reduction of Guinness sweetened with sugar. This delicious sauce takes no time at all to prepare.
Reduce the sauce carefully
It’s important to reduce the Guinness/sugar mixture carefully. It needs to be simmered on low for about an hour – this will reduce it by at least half. The more reduction, the more tang you will get. You don’t need to stand over the pot for a whole hour, but you do need to pay attention and give it a stir every now and then.
What makes Guinness so full of flavor.
Even if you’re not Irish, you must be familiar with the Irish dry stout called Guinness. Guinness stout is an offshoot of the porter style of beer that was originally made in London in the early 18th century. Guinness has a very distinctive burnt flavor that comes from the use of roasted unmalted barley. The wonderfully enticing thick creamy head of Guinness results from the beer being mixed with nitrogen when being poured.
