There’s no written rule that says all St. Patrick’s Day cocktails have to be green. This year I decided to save the green drinks for the bar scene and mix something different at home. The end result is a cocktail that I like to call “Sweet James” This cocktail is made with two Irish favorites – Jameson and Guinness with a bit of Pineapple Juice to give it a sweet flavor.
What you need:
2 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey (or any Irish Whiskey)
1/2 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
2 oz pineapple juice
1 bottle or can of Guinness Stout
Add whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and pineapple juice into a cocktail shaker with ice.
Shake well and serve over ice only filling only 1/2 the glass
Pour the Guinness slowly over the cocktail filling it to the top
