Caramel ice cream is also very good in this!
I certainly would like some Guinness but will have to settle for a small glass of my favorite moonshine and a heart felt toast of the best luck and happiness, safe traveling and abundant days of sunshine for all the CW members!
Nuth'n wrong with that !
Wear some green & drink some white lightning.
A special drink posted in Food Section of paper. ( "The Enquirer", March 16, 2016).
Dark Chocolate Dublin Iced Coffee
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon dark cocoa
2 oz. coffee
2 oz. stout beer
1.5 oz Irish whiskey
Prepare the dark chocolate syrup. In a small pot, combine the sugar and water; place on burner and bring to high heat. Cook until the sugar is dissolved, and then turn off the heat and whisk in the dark cocoa powder. Let come to room temperature before using.
Assemble the drink: into a tall glass filled with ice, pour the syrup. Next pour your coffee, stout and whiskey. Stir together.
Finish with cream on top just before serving
.Cheers! Have a great day.

Creative names, too!
Another thread for St. Patrick's Day.
It has been a year since this post began and no one thought of "GREEN BEER".
In Irish taverns in Chicago (and I mean taverns, working men's joints with a simple bar and one TV with a White Sox game on, not these phony Irish pubs with cutesy names that are full of Chads and Trixies) I often drank a half and half--half Guinness and half beer, usually Old Style.
And if you really want to celebrate St. Patrick go to mass.
Here's a recipe for a Guinness Float a little different than the one @diane posted.
2 bottles Guinness
4 scoops ice cream, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, caramel would be the tastiest
½ cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon pre-made caramel sauce
Place 2 pint glasses, a medium bowl and beaters from an electric mixer into the freeze for 30 minutes.
Remove the bowl and beaters. Place the beaters back into the mixer
Add the heavy cream and sugar to the bowl.
Starting on low speed, start to beat the cream, slowly increase the speed to medium high and beat for about 2 minutes or until the consistency of whipped cream. Set aside.
Remove glasses from the freezer and scoop 2 scoops of ice cream into each glass.
Pour Guinness over ice-cream.
Top with whipped cream and drizzle with caramel sauce.
That's a great one! Guinness is too strong for me to just drink but I love cooking with it - it particularly lends itself to chocolate.
Being as how I have to watch my intake of sugar and dairy products I,ll just have the 2 bottles of Guinness and pretend I used the other stuff.
No Irish car bombs?
Drop a shot of Jaegermeister into a pint of Guinness and drink merrily.
Has anyone tried Smithwicks? ? saw a pint in my trail running magazine......
