St. Patrick’s Day Drinks

Partaking in the St. Paddy’s Day celebrations? Not a fan of the lovely the “black stuff”? Try some of these St. Patrick’s Day inspired drinks.

A Baby Guinness from @CreativCulinary

Baby Guniness

60 ml Coffee Liqueur like Kahlua, chilled

60 ml Bailey’s Irish Liqueur, chilled

  1. Fill a shot glass 2/3 full with coffee liqueur.
  2. Pour Bailey’s over the back of a spoon, down the inside of the glass. It should layer on top of the Kahlua and form the ‘head’ that make it look like Guinness. (Creative Culinary).

60 ml Vodka

45 ml Sour Apple Liqueur

1 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
