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.
1. Guinness St. James Flip Recipe
- 1 oz. Black Strap Rum
- 0.5 oz. sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 of a fresh egg
- 1.5 oz. Guinness® Foreign Extra Stout or Guinness® Draught
- Grated nutmeg
Combine all wet ingredients in a cocktail shaker and dry shake without ice. Add ice to the shaker and continue to shake until the mixture is smooth and frothy. Strain cocktail into a small goblet and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
2. Guinness Black Velvet Recipe
- Half a flute of Champagne
- Half a flute of Guinness® Extra Stout
Pour Guinness Draught into a champagne flute. Add champagne carefully, so it does not mix with the Guinness and serve.
3. Guinness Dean Swift Recipe
- 1 oz. Johnnie Walker Whisky®
- 2 oz. Guinness® Foreign Extra Stout
- 1 oz. Claret or Bordeaux style wine
- 0.25 oz. Demerara syrup
- 1 teaspoon Allspice Dram Liqueur
- Grated nutmeg
This is a warm cocktail served in an Irish coffee goblet. Combine all the ingredients except the whisky in a saucepan and heat the liquid. Pour into a preheated glass and add Johnnie Walker® Whisky to the top. Grate with fresh nutmeg and enjoy.
