Burnt Oranges


Highball Glass

Glass Guide- Highball Glass

I'm always on the lookout for extremely unique cocktails that fit a certain theme. St. Patrick's Day is one of the most difficult, because more often than not the drinks contain Irish spirit or are green. The burnt oranges recipe caught my eye because it's a creative use of Guinness. Rarely have I seen a beer mixed drink that is this stunning. If you want to have a Guinness in a new style, this is a great place to start.
