The world is on fire, the plague is upon us, and many of us are about to see our lives get disrupted in lots of big and small ways, but St. Patrick’s Day is next week and people still have their vices, so I made up a new cocktail. It’s called a Black Irish and it’s only three ingredients: Guinness; Jamison; and Mr. Black, which you may recall from my viral (it wasn’t viral) Martini Espresso video. It’s super easy to make, very delicious, and full of caffeine, striking the perfect balance of taking the edge off while also putting a little fuel in your engine. It got me through the dark days of last week when my gal Warren was annihilated in the primaries, and it’ll get me through the dark days ahead when my kids inevitably have school canceled for who knows how long while the coronavirus continues its global spread. These are crazy times; this drink can help a little.
Here’s how to make it:
6 ounces of Guinness
3/4 ounce of Jamison
1 ounce of Mr. Black coffee liqueur
Add ingredients to a glass, stir, and enjoy!
