Not everyone loves the rich taste of Guinness, believe it or not. But St. Patrick's Day calls for the inclusion of the dark brew, so we've come up with a few ways anyone can enjoy a sip or a bite.
The taste of the Irish for dinner and dessert
Long before San Antonio, Texas was the tourist destination it is today, each night at dusk, a group of Mexican women wearing brightly colored dresses would begin building wood or charcoal fires and reheating large pots of the chili they'd been cooking all day. Known as "chili queens," these women would sell the intoxicatingly aromatic stew by the bowl to area locals.
While health-code regulations eventually pushed out these pioneers of marketing, the tradition of sharing your favorite chili recipe with neighbors lives on. This Saint Paddy's Day, share this Irish-inspired version with your friends and family!

Fightin' Irish ice cream float recipe
Ice cream floats conjure up visions of a simpler time… a more innocent time when teen boys would take their steady girls to the ice cream parlor for a float to celebrate giving her his pin. Times have changed, and as much as we love a classic, St. Patrick's Day calls for a new tradition. Part cocktail, part dessert, this float is 100 percent amazing any day of the week.
