Adding a little Irish whiskey and brown sugar to coffee changes your cup of Joe from a morning-time necessity to an early-evening party starter. Why not add all three of those to a nice Irish stout to really make things festive on Saint Patrick’s Day? The combination adds complexity and depth to your favorite stout. Guiness Draught cans work well, but I made these with Oskar Blues Ten Fidy Imperial Stout.




    • 2 ounces Irish whiskey
    • 1 packet of Starbucks Via instant coffee (or 0.12 ounces micro-ground coffee powder)
    • 2 ounces brown sugar simple syrup
    • 2 cans Guinness Draught Stout, 14.9 ounces each


To make the brown sugar simple syrup, combine equal parts (by volume) water and light brown sugar in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and refrigerate.

Use a fork to whisk the micro-ground coffee into the whisky until dissolved. Stir in the brown sugar simple syrup.

Split the mixture into the bottom of 2 beer glasses. Pour the beers over the top.
