Do you remember the first time you tried Guinness? Did you think it had a strong porter bite? Well, this may look like a shot glass full of Guinness but guess again. This delicious Baby Guinness shooter is not made with Guinness but will keep you coming back for more.
Did you know this about Guinness?
When it comes to drinking Guinness, the Irish know best. This world-famous stout is brewed in Dublin, Ireland, and has been a beloved 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 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. It reminds me of the sound from a can of Reddi Whip when you squirt whipped cream all over that piece of Thanksgiving pie. Pour the contents of the can into an official Guinness tulip-shaped pint glass at a 45-degree angle.

Don’t have a Guinness Pint glass? Get one here. Let the beer settle while you wait for the creamy head to form on the top of the stout. Now take your first sip.

Ingredients that you’ll need to make Baby Guinness
- Baileys Irish Cream
- Kahlua Coffee Liqueur
This simple yet delicious shooter is made with Baileys Irish Cream and Kahlua Coffee Liqueur. Not Guinness. The Baby Guinness shooters are so good you won’t be able to get enough.
How to make the Baby Guinness
Pour the Kahlua into a shot glass. Layer the Bailey’s on top of the Kahlua using the back of a spoon. Drink up and enjoy. I did. Many a time.
Here are the other 4 drinks that I discovered during my first trip to Ireland: Guinness, Baileys Irish Cream, Black & Black, and Irish Whiskey & Cranberry. One other favorite is the Irish Car Bomb drink. I didn’t discover this in Ireland, but at a bar in South Carolina called the Blu Martini.
