Baby Guinness Shot Recipe

Happy St. Patrick’s Day coming up! YAHOO! I freaking love holidays.

I’m really looking forward to this year again when I can chill at my bestie’s for their annual Sullivan St. Patty’s Day party. Every year, they deck out their awesome barn with all things Irish and entertain like 30,000 of their closest friends. Last time I went, there were more desserts than even I could try (that’s saying something), tons of beer and snacks and even some Irish dancing from a local dance school. So much damn fun!

This year, I’m deciding to celebrate early by posting my new favorite drink, the Baby Guinness Shot. A year or so ago, I was introduced to this drink while hanging out at my other bestie’s house, Jaden. Her and her husband and friends Wendy and Shaun introduced me to this creation. A sucker for any creamy drink, this shot was immediately added to my repertoire. I’ve made it more times than I like to admit, and lately I’ve been serving it up to my homies (hi Jenn ;) just to have an excuse to have another for me…(I’m smart sometimes).

But somehow, I didn’t quite pick up on the whole reason it was called Baby Guinness, until I researched it for this post (I’m slow sometimes). It’s all in the way you pour it that makes it look like a tiny baby Guinness beer, complete with a frothy head and all. Check out the video for the secret!

If the ratio isn't quite right for you, feel free to add more irish cream, or even put it over ice and drink it short, instead of as a shot. This is my favorite way because I like to sip it slowly.

Recipe type: alcohol
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 ounce coffee liqueur
  • ½ ounce irish creme
Instructions
  1. In a shot glass, pour the coffee liqueur. Invert a spoon and place it over the opening of the shot glass. Slowly pour the irish creme over the spoon, taking care not to mix the two liquors. If you pour it slowly and carefully enough, the irish creme will float on top of the coffee liqueur, creating the look of a tiny beer.
