Jamaican Guinness Punch: How to make the sweet and boozy cocktail this St Patrick's Day

ST PATRICK'S Day is just around the corner,and while we can't take to the streets to celebrate this year, there's plenty of ways to mark the day.

Whether you'll watch St Patrick's Day mass online, learn about the life of the patron saint through films or take part in a virtual parade or catch up with friends over Zoom, no St Patrick's Day celebration is complete without a cold drink in your hand-- and this is the perfect candidate.

Jamaican Guinness Punch is a Carribean recipe that takes Ireland's favourite drink and gives it a sweet new taste while retaining the creamy texture Guinness is renowend for.

It's quick and easy to make, requiring just six ingredients, and if St Patrick's Day is sunny this year (fingers crossed!) it's the perfect cocktail to have while sitting out in your garden.

So without further ado... here's how to make Jamaican Guinness Punch.

What you'll need:

  • One bottle of Guinness Extra Stout
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Whipped cream to garnish (Optional)


How to make it:

  1. Pour the Guinness, milk vanilla extract and condensed milk and blend together.
  2. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and blend again before tasting with a spoon, adjusting for sweetness with more condensed milk if necessary.
