We’re coming down to the wire, kids. St. Patrick’s Day is now only 5 days away, and if your hometown is anything like ours in Buffalo, the party will begin as soon as the weekend does. If you haven’t yet decided on which beverages you’ll be imbibing in for the holiday, don’t fret. I’ve got a slew of stout cocktails here that even Arthur Guinness himself would dig… and not just your run-of-the-mill Black and Tans, either.
½ pint Guinness
½ pint lemonade
Mix together and serve in a pint glass.
5 oz chilled Guinness
1½ oz chilled champagne
Pour Guinness into a champagne flute. Add champagne carefully so it doesn’t mix with the Guinness.
½ pint chilled Guinness Draught
½ pint chilled Smithwick’s Irish Ale
Fill a pint glass just over halfway with Smithwick’s Ale. Place your black & tan spoon on the rim of the glass and slowly pour your Guinness Draught over it, being careful not to mix. Let the head settle and enjoy.
Guinness (nearly a full pint)
Dollop of Creme de Cassis (black currant-flavored liquere)
Fill your pint glass nearly to the top with Guinness. Top with a dollop of Creme de Cassis, stir and enjoy.
Have any other Guinness cocktails worth giving a try for St. Patrick’s Day? Pass ‘em along!
This just in from a Twitter friend of mine, SneakerKing (not sure of the drink’s name, so I’ll get creative):
Guinness on the Wing
½ pint of Guinness
½ pint of Red Bull
Fill your pint glass halfway with Guinness. Carefully add the Red Bull so it doesn’t foam up out of your glass. Drink and repeat.
