The art of Guinness drinking is serious business in Ireland. So, you may want to close your eyes as this Scottish YouTuber shows five ways not to drink Guinness.
If there is one thing that is synonymous with the Emerald Isle – aside from leprechauns and St Patrick’s Day, of course – it’s Guinness.
The Black Stuff is deeply engrained into Irish culture, with one of the country’s main tourist attractions even centred around the famous drink.
People across Ireland know there is a particular art to drinking Guinness, and many will express their disdain when they see it being done wrong.
So, if you’re one of those people who can’t stand to see the Irish drink being ruined, then we advise looking away now as this Scottish YouTuber shows five ways not to drink Guinness.
Irish blasphemy – don’t drink Guinness like this
Scottish YouTuber Flex With Drez teams up with The Irish Cocktail Guy to get ready for St Patrick’s Day in true Irish fashion – in the pub with a pint of Guinness in hand.
However, what he does next might offend Guinness fans everywhere.
Showing various ways not to drink a pint of the Black Stuff, Flex with Drez and The Irish Cocktail Guy start by adding blackcurrant juice to the Irish stout.
Taking a sip of the unusual concoction, The Irish Cocktail Guy said, “I can’t see any reason why you would drink that.”
And if you think that’s bad, it only gets worse.
Strange combinations – how to ruin a Guinness
For their second attempt to ruin a Guinness, the two men create a cocktail of Guinness, Captain Morgan, and Coca Cola – yes, you read that right.
To offend Irish people even more, the Scot said at the prospect of the drink, “That sounds pretty nice, to be honest,” before adding a straw to take a sip of the horrendous concoction.
Giving the Irish drink a Scottish twist, they then add Irn Bru to a pint of Guinness, and if that doesn’t take it too far, then we really don’t know what will.
Other strange combinations they include in the video are Guinness with WKD and Guinness with MD.
A St Patrick’s Day treat – don’t try this at home
