Abt-solutely Delicious: St. Paddy’s Day Edition

Friday, March 10th, 2017

Festive Guinness Recipes

There’s a little bit of Irish in everybody on St. Patrick’s day. For some it’s a time to don your green clothes, grab a pint, and hit the parade. For others, it’s a chance to host a party with friends and family. We’ve assembled three delicious dishes that highlight the almighty Guinness draught beer that are perfect for your St. Paddy’s day festivities. Not just a favorite drink on the holiday, the malty flavor imported from Ireland is also versatile ingredient when used for cooking. Abt-solutely Delicious Stamp - Guinness Recipe Edition

While most will be drinking the delicious pint of the gods, you can curb their munchies with some Guinness-inspired snacks. We start with a robust barbecue sauce whose tantalizing flavors will pair with the meat of your choice. Then for the main course, a heavenly cheesy Guinness Mac n’ Cheese, followed up by a malty Guinness float for dessert. These snacks won’t leave you like a blind cobbler’s thumb, and it has been shown that Guinness is good for you, in moderation. We hope you enjoy these dishes and please have a responsible St. Patrick Day.
