Baby Guinness

Day 151

Baby Guinness
4 shots out of 5

WOW what a weekend!  It went super fast forward and now it's Sunday night and we're about to start, yet another...........week.  Had a great BBQ last night, drank a LOT of beer.  Made a pitcher of my Hawaiian Punch and also added some Malibu rum to it to kick it up a notch!  We played a new (to us) game, Flip Cup Survivor.  It puts a fun spin on the regular Flip Cup game (which is still fun, don't get me wrong), and team won, EVERY TIME!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  This is a creamier shot with the Baileys on top.  It goes down pretty smooth and nice.  It doesn't taste like Guinness to me at all, but I'm thinking that because it's a smooth shooter and Guinness is a smoother beer, plus the beer and the shooter are more or less the same color when poured into a glass (dark is the beer, light on top is the foam) that that's why/how it got it's name?  Sure.  Why not.  Whatever the reason, this is a nice shooter, one that doesn't make you do that "Oh man that was a bad shot" dance when you finish it.

Here is the ingredients for a Baby Guinness:

  • 2/3 shot Kahlua
  • 1/3 shot Baileys
In a shot glass pour your Kahlua and then tilt the glass and pour your Baileys down the side.

  1. Try it with Patron XO instead of Kahlua. De-licious!
