How to make The Liquor Rooms’ headline (punchline?) cocktail. Here, Fergus O’Leary, general manager of the premium Dublin cocktail joint, shares the (slightly surreal) recipe for one of their exclusive tipples…
This whiskey-based charmer is one of our favourites from the menu, not only because it’s delicious, but because it’s more than just a drink – it’s an experience! It was created in The Liquor Rooms by our wonderful Swedish bartender, John Norrman. John is known for spurting out the most ridiculous statements and jokes that would only be considered “funny in Sweden”. We decided to garnish the drink with a tiny scroll tied to the stem of the glass, on which we have printed a terrible joke. The joke is not meant to be funny, which leads to some bemused and confused faces, to which the bartender can say, “It’s funny in Sweden – I promise.”
Also, on the back of each joke, we have a section for the customer to submit their very own terrible joke along with their email and name, and, as long as it’s not too funny, we will add it to our list of jokes and reference the author.
