St. Patrick's Day is Only 9 Days Away!

So this means that I'm facing the pressing question of what novel mixed creations I can find that include Guinness. Here are some contenders....

Black and Brown recipe
1/2 glass Guinness® stout
1/2 glass root beer

CAREFULLY to avoid explosive head formation: Pour Beer glass half full of favorite rootbeer and top off with Guinness.

I prefer Henrys for the rootbeer (cold) and the Guinness warm and flat. I have used other beers and for me stouter is better. Porter works. You may vary the 50/50 proportions to taste. One of the most charming traits of this drink is the disgusted looks you get when you order it.

Serve in: Beer Mug

Guinness Shandy recipe
1/2 pint Guinness® stout
1/2 pint lemonade

Mix lemonade with Guinness in a pint glass.

2% (4 proof)
Serve in: Beer Mug

Baby Guinness
2 1/2 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur
1/2 oz Bailey's® Irish cream

Pour Kahlua, almost filling shot glass. Then, carefully pour Baileys, using wall of shot glass. This will give the "Guinness" its "head".

Black Velvet recipe
5 oz chilled stout
5 oz chilled Champagne

Pour stout into a champagne flute. Add champagne carefully, so it does not mix with stout, and serve.

9% (18 proof)
Serve in: Champagne Flute

Mmmmmm Mmmmmm! Definantly worth a try!
