Guinness Cocktails for St. Patty's Day

Despite what this Food & Wine article claims, the Black Velvet cocktail is not "insanely good." In fact, when Cooper and I tried it, we both kind of hated it.

But that doesn't mean Guinness won't work in some drinks.

The aforementioned F&W article mentions a Guinness and vanilla vodka concoctions, made Cuffs in Boston, called an Irish Velvet. That sounds pretty decent.

This creamy whiskey drink, the Foynes' Red Eye, also sounds good (if a little heavy).

And I think the Black and Black sounds good, too.

But realistically? Guinness is probably best just served straight.

Happy almost-St. Patrick's Day, everyone!
