With St. Patrick”s Day just around the corner, you”ll be seeing lots of green beer and Shamrock shakes this week, but here”s one that really takes the cake: IRISH CEREAL MILK. This drink comes from Lexington Brass in New York and combines the childhood glory of sugary online casinos leftover cereal milk with the adulthood glory of…Whiskey.

Make Cinnamon Toast Crunch milk (soaking the cereal in milk for 30 min. and then straining out the cereal).

Fill Rocks glass with ice, pour Jameson and simple syrup in. Fill glass with Cinnamon Toast Crunch milk.

Putting a Little Luck in Your Mouth

Forget cooking with Guinness. If you want to really taste Ireland in your mouth this St. Patrick’s Day, you should be eating shamrock.

I was previously unaware that lucky four-leaf clovers were actually edible (and I’m still not sure they are). However, Keogh’s, the Irish potato company that has brought us such treasures as roast beef and Irish stout potato chips, is now offering the perfect treat to dip in your pint of green beer: chips with real, 100% Irish shamrock.

Not surprisingly, they expect the snacks to generate the most interest outside of Ireland:

“The idea for a Shamrock crisp came from our absolute pride in being Irish farmers and a constant need to be innovative in our offering, we are very excited about them and already have interest from abroad” Tom Keogh said. They are expecting high demand from abroad for the snack.

Of course, it raises the question, what the hell does shamrock taste like, and should you really be eating it?

America’s Best New Sandwiches — 2012

You want sandwiches? We got sandwiches. Last year, Endless Simmer’s post on America’s Top 10 New Sandwiches was our most-read story of 2011, and even helped turn The New Luther into a bit of a sell-out phenomenon. But America’s sandwich artisans haven’t stopped innovating, and we haven’t stopped salivating. So here we go, for your drooling-at-work pleasure, this year’s list of America’s top 10 craziest, loveliest, cheesiest, most creative new sandwiches.

10. The Noble Pig —  Noble Pig Sandwiches, Austin

Texas may be best known for its beef, but perhaps not for long, if chefs John Bates and Brandon Martinez have anything to say about it. Their year-and-a-half-old Noble Pig serves up a namesake sandwich that somehow combines everything that is beautiful about pork products on one truly outstanding sandwich. Tender pulled pork, spicy slivers of ham, and crispy bits of bacon are all mixed together, topped with provolone cheese, and served on toasted, house-baked bread, for a porky trifecta that hits all of the spots.

9. Pane et Panelle — Bar Stuzzichini, New York

Chickpeas may get typecast as functioning only in falafel form, but it turns out balls aren’t all they can do. Panelle is actually an old Sicilian street food snack—chickpeas and flour formed into light, airy strips and fried in olive oil. Stuzzichini‘s sandwich revives that classic and perfects it, layering crispy strips of panelle on a sesame-studded bun, in between levels of soft ricotta and caciocavallo cheeses. The result is a light-but-addictive sandwich that will make you curse every overly dense falafel wrap that has crossed your lips.

8. Chicharrones Banh Mi — Ink Sack, Los Angeles

There are a million banh mis in American nowadays, but we were most swept away by this version from Top Chef champ Michael Voltaggio. At his new Ink Sack sandwich shop, tender slices of pork belly and pork butt are topped with pickled vegetables, plus the kicker — crispy chicharróne fried pork rinds, creating one incredible multi-culti pork bomb.

ES Taste Tests the New Crystal Guinness

Following the massive popularity of our recent 100 Ways to Cook with Guinness post, the brass in Dublin decided Endless Simmer should be among the first “early influencers” invited to try their new product, Crystal Guinness, set to be released in the U.K. and Ireland on June 1 and in the U.S. later this summer.

The brew is Guinness’ first attempt at a spinoff product in more than three decades, and was conceptualized in response to declining Guinness sales throughout Ireland. While Guinness remains the most popular beverage sold in the motherland, it has recently lost considerable market share to Bulmers Irish Cider, which has enjoyed phenomenal success over the past five years, particularly during the summertime. Irish countryside pubs are still reliably stocked by old lads who wouldn’t dare order anything but the classic black stuff, but in more cosmopolitan Dublin, younger drinkers have gone crazy for Bulmers’ sharp, fruity taste and light, drinkable body.

101st Guinness Recipe: Irish Cheesecake Bombs

Irish car bombs, re-imagined as cheesecake, made in individual sizes, fork required. All you have to do is mix your Guinness in some chocolate cheesecake batter, spike the classic cheesecake with some Baileys, throw the whiskey in the Oreo cookie crust and you have yourself an Irish car bomb that won’t require a designated driver.

Alright, now that St. Patty’s will be over in two days, I promise to ease up on the beer desserts. Uh, maybe not…I’m so invoking the two-second rule on that food statement. I’m on a beer and cocktail/dessert mashup kick.  If anyone has a cocktail they want to see in a dessert, let me know in the comment section and I’ll make it happen!
