The Secret Ingredient In These Saint Patrick’s Day Recipes Is Booze (And Love, But Mostly Booze)

Pop open a cold one and put on your “Kiss me, I’m Irish” apron, it’s time to bake up some awesomeness! Important note, all of the alcohol in these recipes will bake out, so they’re fine for everyone. Except the homemade Irish Cream recipe, that’ll put hair on your chest and a ring on your finger — proceed with caution!

Beer Bread

Artfully messy tablespoons are the best!

Artfully messy tablespoons are the best!

I grew up in the Midwest and usually heard this called Coors Bread. It never really had enough of a beer taste for me. I prefer to make it with a hoppier beer. It’s super simple and super delicious.


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 12 ounces delicious beer (It’s Saint Paddy’s Day, try Guinness!)
  • 2-4 tablespoons butter melted and poured over the bread before it bakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 375-degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together (except the butter) in a large bowl. What’s that? You didn’t read through the sentence and you already added all the butter? It’ll be okay, that’ll just make for a heartier bread.
  3. Spray an 8″x4″ loaf pan with PAM.
  4. Pour in the batter and top with the melted butter — this makes for a super crunchy crust, if you don’t like that then go ahead and add the butter during the mixing process.
  5. Bake for 50 minutes.
  6. Remove the bread from the pan (or it will become gummy, that goes for most things baked in a loaf pan) and let it cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing it up.
