Today I’m sharing all of my delicious St. Patrick’s Day recipes along with the secret to pouring the perfect black and tan. Let’s Go!!
Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day
Every year when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around, I share fun recipes that celebrate the Irish. Recipes like these Corned Beef Hotdogs, and this Shepherd’s Pie. Want to know the right way to make Green Eggs and Ham? I’ve got you covered! And my St. Patrick’s Day recipes don’t stop there. Try these beyond decadent Guinness Stout Cupcakes for dessert.
To accompany all of these delicious food recipes, a tall black and tan is on the menu. I’m showing you how to pour the perfect one.
Whenever I order a Black and Tan, I’m mesmerized at how the bartender pours the two beers and the art of having the drink presented in two layers, in one glass. What skill, I always think. So, natch, I set out to pour my own. After several failed attempts (and ending up half in the bag), I finally got the knack of it. Turns out, the art of pouring this drink isn’t so difficult. Start off with Guinness Stout and an ale; the traditional ale used is Harp. Then, the tricks of pouring are these: pour the ale quickly so there is a nice head of foam, use a serving spoon for more surface area, and then pour the Guinness very slowly over the spoon.
Watch my quick video for the how-to.
