Guinness recipes - 5 recipes

By Rachel Dignam

I will forever remember the picturesque moment of my very first sip of Guinness.  My family had originally flown to Ireland to attend wedding, but upon our arrival my dad had insisted we stay an extra two weeks to tour the coast. I was ten years old, surrounded by family, sitting outside my Grandad’s favourite Irish pub, along the cobblestone streets of Dublin. Despite their ongoing encouragement and attempts to market it as the ‘adult chocolate milk,’ I was less than enthused, if not intimidated to try. Much to my own dismay, I eventually surrendered and to this day I occasionally enjoy the odd sip.
