Black & Black – Happy St Patrick’s Day
Do you remember the first time you tried Guinness? Did you think it had a strong porter bite? Well, you no longer have to suffer through it, just add a shot of Black Current Liqueur and magically the bite is gone. In Ireland, this drink is called the Black & Black. Happy St Patrick’s Day!
The first time that I was in Ireland, and the first time that I had a Guinness, I thought to myself this beer has a bite. I must have made a comment to the Bartender because he picked up a bottle, swirled a purple liqueur on the top of my Guinness and said drink it now. Haha, it was magically delicious. Now you can try a Black & Black. Just to let you all know, I no longer drink my Guinness with the purple swirl. Ok, on occasion I do, I love the Black Current liqueur.
Here are the other 4 drinks that I discovered during my first trip to Ireland: Guinness (I buy it in a 4 pack of cans), Baileys Irish Cream (you can find it at any store that sells Liquor), Irish Whiskey & Cranberry, and Baby Guinness. One additional favorite, the Irish Car Bomb drink. I didn’t discover this in Ireland but at a bar in South Carolina called the Blu Martini. If you need a set of Guinness Pint glasses, you can find them here.
