Celebrate your Irishness this St. Patrick's Day with the deliciously refreshing Guinness cocktail.

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day a few years ago, Guinness threw a hooley (meaning party) and everyone was invited. The iconic Irish brand explored some mouth-watering food and beer pairings, in Ireland and in the USA. March is, after all, Irish American Heritage month so what better way to celebrate than with some great Irish food and drinks.

Guinness has given us some great food and drinks recipes that would suit any St. Patrick's Day table from their Black Velvet cocktail to their Guinness Ice Cream Float. This cocktail recipe is so simple and delicious, however, that we're sure we'll be falling back on it plenty over the next few weeks.
