Black-tea ice cubes, sultana swizzle sticks, honeycomb, vodka, gin, rye and more all shaken and stirred and muddled and served for your pleasure - meet the drinks (and their makers) you'll find at the year's biggest cocktail carnival
Brendan Behan was asked by Guinness to come up with an advertising slogan. As part of his payment he received half a dozen kegs of stout. After a month, the company wanted to know what he'd come up with to which he replied after drinking all six kegs, "Guinness makes you drunk". Take in Monday morning on St Pat's for the all-day breakfast and stay into the evenings and craic (geddit?) some floorboards dancing to the bush and Irish bands that'll be playing all day. These guys aren't so much about wearing their county on their sleeve in terms of décor but the place is packed with Irish people here constantly and the big all-wood bar is a stunner.
