3 Guinness Cocktails for St. Patrick’s Day

Last year for a St. Patrick’s Day cocktail we shared the Mint Paddy Martini that doubled as a Thin Mint Martini. This year, we are taking the more traditional route and sharing three Guinness cocktails for St. Patrick’s Day.

Guinness Cocktails

These Guinness cocktails range in spirits. We have the Black Velvet with Champagne. The Irish Russian with vodka. And the Dog’s Nose with gin. There should be something for everyone to enjoy. If not, maybe you check out the Irish Whiskey St Patrick’s Day Cocktails.

Dog’s Nose Cocktail

Ingredients

2 ounces Gin
Guinness (or other stout)
Nutmeg
Optional: 2 tsp brown sugar

Preparation

Add gin to a pint glass and top with Guinness. Dust with nutmeg.

If desired, you can add brown sugar to the drink recipe by heating up the Guinness or even making brown sugar simple syrup (equal parts brown sugar/water over stove). Your call on what you like best and how motivated you are at the time of making the drink.
