What could be more fun than having 5 traditional Irish cocktails to celebrate St Patrick’s Day? Well, maybe an easy traditional Irish meal?! I discovered 5 traditional Irish cocktails during my trip to Ireland. One of the most popular is Guinness Stout.
When it comes to drinking Guinness, the Irish know best. This world-famous stout, brewed in Dublin, Ireland, has been a cherished beverage for centuries.
Guinness tastes best when served on draft, but only in a Pub or Bar that sells a lot of Guinness. If the stout sits in the tap line for over an hour, it loses its freshness. For this my Guinness cocktails, I choose nitrogenated cans.
Pop the tab on the can and let the can sit for a moment. You can hear the surge of bubbles from the nitrogen-filled capsule contained in each can of Guinness. The sound reminds me of a can of Reddi Whip when you squirt whipped cream over that piece of Thanksgiving pie.

Don’t have a Guinness Pint glass? Get one here. Pour the contents of the can into an official Guinness tulip-shaped pint glass at a 45-degree angle. Let the beer settle while you wait for the creamy head to form on the top of the stout. Now take your first sip.
