Day 76 – The Guinness Spoon

Beer doesn’t love me as much as I love beer, but on Saint Patrick’s Day, I do like to celebrate with a Guinness. It’s chock full of vitamins and minerals and helps you grow strong!

Not sure how it works? Me either. Let’s read the directions on the packaging, shall we?

The GUINNESS Pouring Spoon is mainly used to prepare the following drinks:

  • Black and Tan (GUINNESS and Bass)
  • Half and Half (GUINNESS and Harp)
  • Black Velvet (GUINNESS and Champagne)

Pour the GUINNESS onto the back of the Pouring Spoon so that it “fans” out over the 2nd drink creating a dividing line between the two drinks.

Nope. Not helpful. And so many capital letters. I need visual aids. Luckily, someone made a video that shows how it works:

So there you go! The Guinness Pouring Spoon, ladies and gentlemen. Try serving your Black and Tan with the Irish O’reo Cookies. You won’t regret it.

Haunting Status: The Guinness Pouring Spoon is probably haunted by the term “Black and Tan”, which isn’t apparently used in Ireland. The layering of a stout over a lager is simply called “half and half”.
