I first experienced the Great Irish Wake in 1985. I used to hide the garters to have over the 3 drink limit. I would recomend all IRISH wannabee's to exlperience McGuires for themselves.

Had my first 2 at McGuires in Pensacola LOVE them, gives you a really nice buzz when you stand up. Can't wait to make them at home.

This drink will knock you on your ass without even realizing it. For the stronger drinkers, two mason jars will get a nice buzz going.
