For purists, a perfectly poured pint of Guinness is as good as it gets as far as St. Patrick's Day boozing goes.
Elayne Duff, mixologist with Diageo Wine & Spirits stopped by to mix up some delicious Guinness cocktails to get into the spirit.
Check out the video and the recipe cocktails using the iconic Irish stout.
-1.5 oz. Ron Zacapa
-0.5 oz. lemon
-0.75 oz. Crème de Cassis
-0.25 oz. Orgeat
Combine all ingredients except Guinness in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain over fresh ice in a highball glass. Top with Guinness Draught.
Guinness Black & Blonde
-10 oz. Guinness Blonde American Lager
-10 oz. Guinness Draught
In a 20 oz. pint glass, pour Guinness Blonde American Lager first. Using a pouring spoon or inverted teaspoon, pour Guinness Draught over the top of your spoon so it disperses evenly.
The dark stout will float on a layer above the lager beer. Fill the pint to the rim and enjoy.

-1 oz. Guinness Extra Stout
-0.5 oz. Rich Simple Syrup
-Dash of Botanical Bitters
Stir all ingredients in an ice filled mixing glass. Strain cocktail over a large ice cube. This cocktail is also delicious when made with Guinness Draught. Garnish with a large orange peel and maraschino cherry.
