does anyone know any other mixes with guinness other than black and tan? ive heard cider's good or ribena apparently, but i'm not sure about that one

The only proper Irish coctail i've heard of is a pint of Guinness with a potato in it.

My girlfriend's mum says she can only drink Guinness if she puts spirits in it. Apparently a double Tia Maria is the thing, but I havent't tried it yet.

There is a thing called Guinness Punch. I mix a bit of sweet cream (or sweet milk), an egg, some cinnamon, and some nutmeg. It's a bit easier to drink on those who don't like the taste of stout beer. However, I like Guinness the way it comes.
A Gift from God, Guinness is.

I've heard vaguely of something called a Black Velvet (I think) which is equal parts Guinness and Champagne.
Also a Black and Blue which is (again, IIRC) Guinness and blackcurrant cordial
There is of course the variety of car bombs (Bailey's irish creme and Irish Whiskey being the only ones I'd ever think of drinking. Jaeger bombs , well..up to you) But I dont think those really count as cocktails

Yeah I've heard of Black Velvet. Equal parts Guinness and Champagne.
Also, I spent a happy summer when I finished school drinking what we called a poor man's Black Velvet which is equal parts Guinness and dry cider. It tasted gorgeous, but as I remember it had a seriously detrimental effect on my poor teenaged self.

The cider ribena mix is a SnakeBite and Black, as opossed to a standard snakebite of lage, cider and ribena. Guiness is also good with whisky as a nice winter warmer at the end of a night to keep you warm on the way home.
Evil_Duncan Posted Nov 15, 2005
I always thought snakebite was just lager and cider and snakebite and black was lager, cider and blackcurrant cordial. Surely cider and blackcurrant (or Ribena) is just cider and black.

Guinness Cocktails are wrong and evil. Have a whiskey on the side instead.

True, a Black Velvet is a complete waste of Guiness.
