whiskey in the glass-o

One more hour until I can get to the doctor, get some antibiotics and put the hex on this sinus infection. I feel like someone is taking a hammer to the entire right side of my head.

At least I hope it's just a sinus infection.

irish.coffee.jpgAnyhow, on with the Irish stuff. Part 5 of my "Pretend you care about St. Patrick's Day" posts.

Looking for a special dessert for tonight? Try making some Guinness ice cream.
1 cup water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Guinness stout In a heavy saucepan whisk together the water and the cornstarch and simmer the mixture over moderate heat, whisking, for 2 minutes.
Add the milks, the salt, and the sugar, heat the mixture over moderately low heat, whisking, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved, and remove the pan from the heat.
Let the mixture cool completely, stir in the Guinness, and freeze the mixture in an ice-cream freezer according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Makes about 1 quart

Or there's always the Irish Coffee thing.

Pour a big cup of black coffee.
Add three or four shots of your favorite Irish whiskey.
Stir.
Put some whipped cream on top so your non-Irish girlfriend thinks you're just socially sipping a dessert type coffee and she doesn't realize you're on a St. Patrick's Day bender and in about one hour you're going to piss in her closet when you mistake it for the bathroom.

Update: As a special St. Paddy's Day bonus, here's a blog by a guy named Collins. Some of you may have known him before. I'm glad he's back.

It seem I've heard the reason God invented whiskey is to prevent the Irish from taking over the world

Well, a person's gotta have priorities eh?

An Irishman is not drunk so long as he can cling to a single blade of grass and not fall off the face of the earth.

Oh.. btw.. the quintessential Irish movie is The Quiet Man

I have my own sinus infection to contend with on top of my hangover from the too many Guinness I had last night. The ice cream sounds like the perfect way to get some comfort food and hair of the dog.
