Again taken or (copied) from the Redleg Rum website, I don’t think its wrong (im using Redleg rum for the cocktail so I probably wont get sued……I hope:)
This one really appealed to me because I’m a big Guinness Fan. It works really well as Redleg has flavours of vanilla which are smooth and really compliment the smooth stout taste of Guinness. We are only using a tiny amount of Guinness here so if you don’t like Guinness it’s not overpowering, it just lends to a smother refreshing cocktail.
1./ We start with a new york background to set the scene. (covering plug sockets in the kitchen) all the players are present…Coke (check)… Guinness (check)… Redleg (check) Lime (check)… Ice (Check)…. Lantern (check)
2./ Add the Redleg to the glass (fill with ice)
3./ Add coke to near the top of the glass (leaving room for a shot of Guinness)
4./ Add shot of Guinness and add sliced lime. Stir very slowly to keep the Guinness head but mixing all the elements together.
The Drink look great with the Guinness Head, its smooth to drink with a strong Vanilla sweetness. The lime and the ginger notes come through to keep it refreshing and the coke gives it a treacle finish. Also it actually looks like a pint of Guinness in cocktail form which is awesome.
