A Tale Of Cocktails #14: St Patrick's Day Special

Baby Guinness 


1 1/2 oz Tia Maria
1/2 oz Baileys

Taste: 9
Look: 8
Cost: 7
Name: 4
Prep: 9
Alcohol: 5
Overall: 7.5

Preparation: Pour the Tia Maria into a shot glass.  Pour the Baileys in afterwards, very slowly.

General Comments: Well, it's a fuck-ton better than actual Guinness, that's for sure.  Actually, it's better than most things, Gaelic or otherwise.  Irish cream with a dash of coffee - what's not to love? If you don't like Gaelic coffee, then there is quite simply something wrong with you.  This is... just a more direct delivery system. Short of injecting drinks straight into my veins, of course, but hopefully we're still a little ways away from that.

Crappy name, though.  Like I needed to be faced with the idea that Guinness is capable of reproduction.
