Cool Plates features dishes from across the country to help inspire chefs' creativity.

For this take on the popular shooter, pastry chef Jessica Mogardo makes a “beer cake.” That’s a chocolate cake layered with chocolate mousse and brushed with lager.

The cake is sliced into two 1-ounce cubes and placed in a milk shake cup, which is filled the rest of the way with a 3:2 blend of chocolate and vanilla ice cream and topped with one ounce each of Irish whiskey and cream liqueur.

The mixture is blended together for about three minutes, poured into a chilled glass and garnished with a cube of beer cake and whipped cream. It’s sold for $9.
