Summer Living With Cobra Beer


Did you know?

That Cobra also make a Cobra Gluten Free and Cobra Zero range making it suitable for even more people to enjoy, whether they have a gluten allergy or are the designated driver.

The Cobra Story

Cobra Beer was founded in 1989 by Lord Karan Bilimoria, after realising that we needed a smoother, less gassy lager.  Using the finest and natural ingredients and a traditional Indian blend of barley malt and yet, with maize, hops and rice.  He was able to produce an extra smooth and less gassy beer, unlike any other.

Originally the beer was to be called Panther, but the name was not popular with customers and was changed to Cobra at the eleventh hour.

Along the journey of Cobra Beer, there have been some amazing recipes created that Cobra compliment perfectly.  Below is a couple of the recipes that sound amazing

cheese pasta

Creamy three cheese spaghetti


280g dried spaghetti pasta
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
180ml fresh double cream
180ml chicken stock
90g parmesan, plus extra for topping
Salt and ground black pepper
2 tbsp. freshly chopped chives


1. Cook spaghetti according to package instruction until al dente. Drain, reserving a little of the pasta water.
2. Meanwhile, in a large pan over medium heat, heat oil and cook the garlic for one minute. Add the double cream, stock reserved pasta water. Pop in the cooked spaghetti and fully coat with the sauce.
3. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in parmesan cheese. Add more water if needed to produce desired consistency and texture. Season and top with the chives just before serving.

Or how about

steak salad

Succulent Steak Salad


60ml balsamic vinegar
60ml olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme or 1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
Sirloin steak – about 350g – 400 g
1 pack of salad greens – about 250g
8 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
4 radishes, sliced
1/2 avocado thinly sliced
100g dried cranberries
Crumbled blue cheese


1. Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, salt and pepper to make the dressing.
2. Place the steak and about a quarter of the dressing in a sandwich bag; seal and make sure the meat is coated. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours, ideally overnight. Also refrigerate the remaining dressing.
3. After this time remove the steak from the bag and throw away the marinade. Grill the meat until cooked to preference. Leave to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
4. Divide salad amongst your plates. Place the steak on top along with the tomatoes, radishes and avocado; follow with a sprinkling of cranberries and as much blue cheese as you like!

These are just two of the recipes found on the Cobra site, there are many more tasty recipes to try, whether cooking for yourself or friends and family.

    This beverage sounds pretty awesome. I have the occasional drink and this sounds like one I would like. I like that it was made to make one feel less gassy. I have noticed when I do have a drink I definitely feel bloated and gassy. I like that there is a gluten free option. The recipes seem delicious as well.

      I have to say I am not a beer drinker, but my husband likes a nice cold beer, and I like the fact they do cater for the driver or those with allergies. The recipes do sound great and I will be trying them out over the summer and they have so many to choose

    I think my husband will love this beer. There are some beer brands that give his a lot of gas, so I would assume he would pretty much like this Cobra beer. The three cheese spaghetti recipe is a must try for me too!
