These Guinness cocktails will change the way you feel about the dark Irish stout.

It’s that time of year again when a regular beer just won’t cut it. I bet if you’re reading this then you’re looking for something new mixed with something familiar, right? Guinness by itself is a complex beer, but when you combine it with rum, champagne, and other spirits it becomes something much more. Find three Guinness cocktails that will 100% change the way you think about the dark Irish stout. I especially like St. James Flip recipe.
