    Had my first Irish Wake at McGuires after 3 Crown and Cokes and all I have to say is Wow. This drink will definitely put you on your ass after a few.

    When I was stationed in Pensacola we used to take the new guys to McGuires, put 2 or 3 of these in them, and then laugh our asses off when they would try to stand up from the booth and just fall right back down. Snuck up on them every time.

    A Florida Panhandle staple. I love the mason jars... I even kept one! I keep it on my bookshelf and throw my spare change in it. I occasionally mix these up for customers at the bar where I work, but I can't do it quite like they do at McGuire's.

    This drink will eff you up. I'm a light drinker, and had no idea what I was getting myself into. The flavor is like an orange, grassy flavor. Sounds nasty, but it's great. Like everyone else, I had one of these babies in Pensacola. Mine was during Pride.

    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.
