How to get tipsy on hot chocolate

Yeah, this recipe's got Guinness

This would be the official national Irish après-ski drink if the green isle's rolling hills turned into snow-topped mountains and the ruddy-faced codgers lining the bars of Dublin's pubs came around to the idea of a chairlift. It's got the rich warmth that we need from a good snowy-day hot chocolate, plus whiskey's sharp uppercut and a pour of Guinness for good measure because we're in Ireland, remember?

So whether you're chilly and drained from a day of skiing, or feeling like you need a little more Irish in your life than the Irish exit you pulled at the bar last weekend, or simply looking for new ways to spin your nightly hot chocolate cha-cha, stir together this Irish Hot Chocolate. You'll be knocking out cocktail hour and dessert in one fell swoop, which is fitting: We Irish are an industrious bunch.
