Guinness and Chocolate Milkshakes with Jameson Cream

Chocolate and Guinness Milkshakes // @speckledpalate for @mycookingspot

Whenever I think of St. Patrick’s Day, I think of early morning parades — I did spend my college years in Louisiana, after all — and Irish drinks… namely Guinness and Jameson.

It’s a random combination, especially since I don’t particularly enjoy Guinness or Jameson on their own and never drank them at a parade.

However, I love using them in dishes.

And these milkshakes? Well, they’d make a spectacular St. Patrick’s Day dessert… or pick-me-up during the day, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Since I was pregnant when these milkshakes were made, my husband played taste tester… and he drank both in record time. And he is not the kind of person who drink milkshakes if he doesn’t like them, so you can take it on good authority that the final product is g-o-o-d.

I’ve always loved the combination of Guinness and chocolate, and I figured this combination would be a winner in a milkshake. And then spiking the half-and-half with a little Jameson before whipping it was a nice touch, too.

Here’s how you can make your own:

Guinness and Chocolate Milkshakes with Jameson Cream


  • 1 cup Dutch chocolate ice cream
  • 1/2 cup Guinness
  • Jameson Cream
  • 1/3 cup half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Jameson


  1. Blend the ice cream and Guinness together in a blender.
  2. Combine the half-and-half with the sugar and Jameson in a medium-sized bowl, and whip for five minutes using a hand mixer. (The mixture will get fluffier, but it won't turn into whipped cream.)
  3. Pour a little bit of the milkshake into a cup, then add a little Jameson cream, and continue this process back-and-forth until two milkshakes have been made.
  4. Enjoy cold!
