Lovely Day for a Guinness, With Ice Cream

can of Guinness with milkshake next to it

Guinness, the iconic dry stout from Ireland, is one of the most popular beers worldwide. With a (manufactured) reputation for being good for you —  a successful advertising campaign that began in the 1930s (“Guinness for Strength”, “Guinness Makes You Strong”) spread the word — the hearty black brew has found a place in the culinary world. French toast, brownies, chili, stews: there are entire websites dedicated to cooking with Guinness.

Edible discovered Guinness in its most sublime state at Relish in Kings Park where Chef Steve Cardello whirls it into a divine milk shake. Stop by for a frosty toast to St. Patrick or pull out your blender and make your own. After all, “Guinness is Good For You.”
