OJ & Guinness?

I saw a guy drinking an OJ and Guinness at a bar on Sunday early afternoon. Is this a "common" drink? What would one even call this? I can't imagine it would taste very good! Any thoughts?

  1. I've never had it, but I have had shandys made with Guiness and limeade (half of each), and they are excellent on a hot day.

        A google search reveals several mentions, incredibly. I will stick with your assessment.

          train wreck???... it sounds more like a crime against nature.

            Sounds disgusting.... but then i have seen someone (regularly) drink guiness with bloody mary mix, kind of like a red eye i guess...

              YECCH! --Purely my opinion, of course. I like Guinness and I like orange juice, but not at the same time.

        2. Guinness and OJ in the same glass?? I had to double take your post for a minute. But after having done some research there is actually a name for this. its called WASP STING!! The following is from the guinness collectors club:

          "Guinness mixed with orange juice (preferably freshly-squeezed and chilled). So called because the colours of Guinness and orange juice are the same as a wasp's. Incidentally, black and yellow are danger signals in nature, and after tasting this drink we can understand why...."

          1. I found one! at the Runcible spoon. Called the O' Neill! I hope you're still alive to read this...

            1. Visit Russia sometime and try these delicious mixed drinks:

              Vodka and coca-cola OR

              Vodka and sweet tea

              I can't off the bat see the guiness and OJ ... BUT there are any number great "sweet stouts", so from one angle basically the OJ is just sweetening up the dry guiness stout I think.

              1. I like Guinness with a scoop of vanilla ice cream plopped into it, so as disgusting as G & OJ sounds I certainly owe it a try. It couldn't be any worse than the Red Wine + Coca-Cola my daughter tells me is popular with young people in Spain.

                1. Try the Scotch and OJ that is seen being drunk by our pink visitors at the resorts in the morning.

                  1. well if you can do Guinness and cider why not Guinness and OJ?

                    1. I first had Guiness in Ireland. It's very common for women to drink it with a shot of Cointreau in it, so similar taste combination.
