Will anything bad happen if I sub some leftover porter into my gingerbread recipe

I have about a third cup of porter leftover in the bottle, I am making Silver Palate's gingerbread recipe tomorrow and thought the porter might make a nice addition. a) is there something about it being alcohol that might affect my baking, and b)this recipe calls for boiling the water before adding...water is the only liquid so that's what I'd be partially replacing. Think I can just boil some watered down porter and be fine?

It will be good.
There are plenty of recipes using either stout or porter in gingerbread and they taste great. Here are two for method...one from Nigella, one from food52 member.
