Guinness Cocktails

The time for celebrating with Guinness is almost upon us...St.Patrick's Day! Now this year why not mix it up and try some Guinness cocktails! While I was recently in Dublin at the Shelbourne Hotel I tried a tasty little libation called a Black Velvet; Guinness and Champagne (shown in picture). I love Guinness because of it's roasted coffee and cocoa flavors and by adding the Champagne it tastes like a sparkling coffee..perfect!

Black Velvet:
I start with a Champagne glass
Fill it halfway with Guinness
Top with Champagne

One other great Guinness cocktail I love is called a Black Fog; Guinness and Chambord. It tastes like a chocolate raspberry truffle.
Black Fog:
1 pint of Guinness
1 shot of Chambord Liquor
Pour the Chambord into the Guinness and enjoy!

Whether you like these ideas or stick to the traditional tried and true, be sure to enjoy a pint of Guinness on St.Patrick's Day! Slainte!
