Hello Everyone and Happy belated, St. Patrick’s Day! We hope that you are keeping well and safe and staying at home during this month of March, that will probably extend into the next few months. At least now, we can get out for unlimited exercise and we are out of our 3rd “lock down” which is good news at all, but we have a way out with with the vaccine.

So what is St.Patrick’s day? It is the Feast of St.Patrick which is a cultural and religious celebration on March 17th.

This is the date of the death of Saint Patrick, who was the patron saint of Ireland.

We thought we would show you how to make another cocktail, called the Little Guinness-Shooter or Baby Guinness-Shooter (as it is also known). Their is not a lot of information regarding the origin/history of the Little Guinness-Shooter. However, we know (that the drink is very popular at all our events) that we do. We also make a lot of the drinks on/around St. Patrick’s day, a popular date in March too. When you ‘down it in one’ it tastes so lovely!

How to make the above cocktail, you will need the following ingredients/equipment.

A combination of the following 2 x drinks, which equal 50ml.

Tia Maria or (Kalhula)


Shot Glass (or something similar from your cupboard)

Bar or Tea Spoon

Cocktail Pourers

This is a fairly straight forward cocktail to make but also very easy to drink too.

To make this cocktail, you will need to follow these simple steps:

Pour the Tia Maria and the Baileys drinks, as slowly as you can, (in the above order), against the back of the bar spoon and the inside of the glass (to get good/defined layers), into the shot glass. Making it look good! You will need to leave (roughly 5 mm) from the top of the glass, to pour the Baileys on top of the drink.

Kick yourself back, relax and enjoy!
