Saint Patricks Day is on Saturday and as I will neither be in Ireland nor able to get my hands on good guinness I decided to start before I left with a few woodland wanders through familiar green spaces and a celebratory (as we've already won the Six Nations, but will play the final game on Saturday) Guinness cocktail; keep scrolling for the details below.
Black Velvet Cocktail
Fill half a cocktail glass with champagne (I've used Moet because we've already won!) and then top the glass up with Guinness. Or you know just have a pint or three of the black stuff solo...
Enjoy your St. Paddys whatever you get up to. Be sure to wear something green, get out into our gorgeous countryside, there's more to climb than Slemish (where it's said St.Patrick tended his flock of sheep) and have a pint for me!
