The After Dinner Shot Called Baby Guinness Has Unique Ingredients
Contrary to the name, the beloved after-dinner shot baby Guinness doesn't actually contain Guinness, Ireland's national drink. Instead, it has coffee liqueur and Irish cream.
The shot of black coffee liqueur topped with a white cap of Irish cream looks like a pint of Guinness with its dark stout body and white foamy head, which gave the drink its name.
Even its shot glass looks like a miniature pint glass, and the bittersweet coffee liqueur tastes like Guinness. Irish cream then adds authenticity and more dessert flavors.
The standard recipe for a baby Guinness calls for a proportion of two parts coffee liqueur, typically Kahlua or Tia Rosa, to one part Irish cream, such as Baileys.
