This beer-based cocktail is a St. Patrick’s Day classic, and whether you’re Irish or not and you want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day today, as most college campuses do, read on to learn how to make your own!

What you need

  • 1/2 shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1/2 shot of Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • 3/4 pint Guinness stout


  1. Pour the Bailey’s into a shot glass, fill half way
  2. Pour the Jameson Irish Whiskey in next, filling the shot glass to the top
  3. Grab a beer mug and pour in the Guinness, allowing the foam to settle
  4. When you’re ready to drink (and drink quickly) drop the shot glass into the Guinness

Make sure to drink immediately after dropping the shot in, because after a few minutes it will curdle and the taste will be less than appealing.
