thebar.com: St Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2014

LONDON, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

Raise a glass this St Patrick’s Day with two newly created Guinness based cocktails
[http://uk.thebar.com/recipe/guinness-cocktails ] from thebar.com.

These two stunning cocktails have one thing in common- Guinness. Ever since the Black
Velvet cocktail was created, more than 150 years ago, bartenders have appreciated the
great taste of Guinness.

The ‘Black Chocolate Velvet’ is a sophisticated and deliciously smooth cocktail that
taps into the current beer-tail trend, making it perfect for St Patrick’s Day. A long
drink, it brings out the rich, fruity, chocolate flavours of Guinness Original with
vanilla, cardamom, blackberry liqueur and – yes – a chocolate ice cream float.

‘The Irish Coffee’ is a modern martini that highlights the extra hops in Guinness
Extra Stout with chocolate, espresso and the mellow fire of Captain Morgan rum.

The two cocktails are designed for sharing, so to transform your St Patrick’s Day
bring the contrasting, complementary halves together and sip them side by side with
friends. They’ll give you a whole new understanding of the flavour of Guinness, and
inspire you to mix even more with the Black Stuff.
