1/2 ounce Irish cream liqueur
1/2 ounce Irish whiskey

Method 1:

  1. Fill a large beer glass with the stout and allow the beer to settle.
  2. Pour the liqueur and whiskey into a single shot glass.
  3. Drop the shot glass into the beer and chug.

This drink will quickly become a favorite, but should be enjoyed in moderation. After all, chugging too much alcohol can be dangerous. However, one of these after a long, stressful week can be a great way to end the evening.

Don’t think of beer as simply a drink to stand alone. Beer works well in a number of mixed drinks and can be used to create delicious after dinner cocktails. Try mixing your favorite beers with your favorite liquors and liqueurs to create flavorful combinations. Just remember to keep the liquor content down to one ounce so that you don’t over indulge.
