Irish Snakebite...

Happy belated St. Patty's Day weekend!  As I said in my previous post, we celebrated in every aspect of our daily lives from eating to drinking to even a wee bit of jigging.  Yes jigging, we like our Cranberries and Chieftains around these parts and no I'm not even a wee bit Irish.  With regards to drinking, I love beer and surprisingly don't mind the taste of Guinness/ stout, but can't drink it all day.  Therefore, I played around a bit with some various cocktails.  I could also kick myself because I forgot one of the key ingredients to the main cocktail I was planning to make... sigh... another time. Below are two of the cocktails I did in fact have the ingredients to make so enjoy...

See ingredients and recipe after the jump....

  • Guinness
  • Hard cider (such as Woodchuck)
  • Apple slice (for garnish)
  1. Pour equal parts stout (Guinness) and hard cider in a Collin's glass.  
  2. Garnish with apple slice.  
  3. Enjoy your Irish Snakebite, but beware, after a bit the venom is lethal. 
The other cocktail that didn't go over as well as its namesake.. the Trojan Horse, coke mixed with Guinness.  I love coke and I love Guinness, but please don't mix the two for me. 

How were y'all's St. Patty's weekends?  Did you make any Guinness cocktail or even Irish cocktails for that matter?
