St. Patrick’s Day is my birthday.

Raspberry Chocolate Milk Porter Pudding Shooters

Having said that, besides my 21st birthday, I don’t usually get too hyped up about the green beer, Guinness, and corned beef.  The reality is, when it comes to beer and corned beef, we pretty much celebrate my Irish heritage all year ’round.  And I never met a potato I didn’t like.

But this year I’m doing something a little bit different.  I’m celebrating my birthday and all things St. Patrick’s Day with a bunch of fantastic blogger friends.  It’s a virtual St. Patrick’s Day party! Woot!  Do what you like to do to celebrate.  Whether you like beer or pretend to like beer on this particular day (and color it green), whether you are Irish or pretend to be on this day, or if you just like awesome food – check out this amazing collection of recipes that will have you covered from head to leprechaun toe with all things that celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

And my birthday.  Cheers!

Raspberry Chocolate Milk Porter Pudding Shooters


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces chocolate (chips, melts, etc., whatever you like)
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Whisk together egg yolks, sugar, and cornstarch
  2. Heat milk, heavy cream, and beer until steamy
  3. Add 1/2 cup of the warm milk mixture to the egg yolks and whisk until combined
  4. Continue adding milk and whisking 1/2 cup at a time until most all milk is combined in the eggs
  5. Add egg/milk mixture back to the pan and heat to just before a boil, stirring or whisking constantly until thick and coats the back of a spoon
  6. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and chocolate until chocolate is melted
  7. Stir in butter until completely melted
  8. Pass through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl to remove any egg solids
  9. Cover with plastic wrap with the plastic touching the pudding to prevent a skin from forming
  10. Refrigerate about 4 hours or overnight
  11. Pipe into small glasses and top with whipped cream, grated chocolate, and mint leaves

  1. I added the chocolate at the end for color more so than flavor because without it the pudding didn’t have a very chocolate-y appearance
  2. Use whatever serving dishes you want.  I used beer festival tasting glasses because that’s what I have a ton of and it adds to the fun St. Patrick’s Day beer fun.
  3. I used Love Ninja from Asheville Brewing Company, but most any chocolate stout or porter would be fine – a touch of raspberry or cherry flavor would be ideal.

  1. I haven’t met a potato I don’t like either, Rach! And I don’t particularly care for green beer, either. Just give it to me straight up, ya know? These little shooters are adorable and I bet deadly good too! Pinned! Happy early birthday to ya, my friend! Hope all is well. Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

  2. Rachelle!! excellent day to have your birthday!! I am like you when it comes to beer I celebrate all year round! Loving this recipe and this round up is looking so good!

  3. I’m with you! I feel like I’m Irish every day of the year with my love of potatoes 🙂 Love these pretty and delicious pudding shooters! Raspberry and chocolate (and Porter, of course) are the perfect combination of flavours. And an early “Happy Birthday”, too 🙂

  4. Pudding & Shooters? I am head over heels for this combo – Loving the raspberry spin and well a huge Happy Birthday To Ya! Shoot away woman, you deserve it!

  5. What a cool birth date! I actually knew this guy years ago who was named Patrick because he was born on St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂 This recipe looks amazing! I also have never met a potato I didn’t like. 😉

  6. I think I tried green beer once. And I’m all about potatoes-I have a whole Pinterest board devoted to them 😂 so I 100% agree with you on all points. I love this! I couldn’t think of a better pairing than chocolate, porter, and raspberry! It’s also a 1,000 times better than green jello shots!

  7. I’m special so I already KNEW St. Pat shared a birthday with you. Can I just say St. Patty is one lucky dude? I mean, who wouldn’t want a share a day with you?!?! 😉 These shooters are freggin’ FABULOUS, Rach! First of all shooter ANYTHING rocks my world, but make them a fancy raspberry chocolate milk porter pudding shooter?! GENIUS! Pinned of course! Cheers, fancy pants! xoxoxox

  8. Happy birthday, Happy St. Patty’s Day, and what a fabulous dessert you’ve brought to the party! I’m not one for artificial green anything, so I’ll stick to my brown stout and a porter pudding shooter 😉 Seriously, this is a fab combination, and I love shooter-sized desserts. Perfect!

  9. Oh man, happy early birthday, Rachelle! I love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! Back when I lived in Baton Rouge, there was always a big parade for St. Paddy’s day…and we’d always go all out with costumes and whatnot. Man, those were good times! Maybe I’ll dig my costume out this year and make a batch of these shooters. They look delicious. Never heard of Love Ninja, but I do love that name!

  10. Pretend to like beer??? What does that mean and, most importantly, why would anyone do that? That’s an insult to beer!
    I wish I was Irish and was born on St Patrick’s Day because then I could celebrate being Irish every day. Although I wouldn’t get much work done but then again, work is way overrated, so who cares.
    I LOVE chocolate pudding (like love it almost as much as I love beer) and have never tried making it with beer. I’m going to try this recipe with that growler of flat chocolate peanut butter stout I have in my refrigerator and hope it works. Thinking since beer is flat that it might not but I need to use it up because I spent $17 on that dang growler of beer!

  11. First off. . .let’s get the most important business at hand taken care of. Happy, happy soon-to-be birthday to you. I hope it is a day filled with everything that makes you happy and lots of these heavenly shooters. And speaking of these shooters. How did you know that I totes been craving pudding?
