What I’m Drinking Right Now: Black & Tan
It being St. Patrick’s Day and all, I figured I’d better at least have a Guinness (and probably a Dublin 8, too, which is a fantastic drink created by bar-master Jeremy Sidener, containing Irish whiskey, orange juice, ginger ale, and a squeeze of lime juice), but then I saw this video from bartender John Blake (via the How2Heroes site), who’s from County Clare, Ireland, though currently working at the Druid in Cambridge, and thought, “why the heck not have a Black & Tan?” And so, I think I will. You should too, and you should watch the video to learn the proper method, and to hear a bit of an Irish accent as well. I mean, today’s not just about the drinking.
