Feb 13th, 2017My fav drink at McGuire's Irish Pub. I live in Pensacola so I can have one whenever I want, but now I will make at home. Thanks!
Jul 25th, 2015Had 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.
Oct 15th, 2013Had my first one this weekend in Destin. Loved it!!!!
Feb 22nd, 2013Second time going to McGuire's in Pensacola, both times had the the Irish Wake. Can't wait to go there again. Oh, and the food is pretty good too!
Oct 6th, 2012When 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.
Jul 8th, 2012Man I had one lastnight and it was good!! and so was the godfather
Mar 1st, 2012These are served at the After Run party also! SO good, but will sneak up on you before you know it! Drank 6 at the last run. Luckily I can crawl home!!!! Making some this year for the after after party! So good!
Jan 19th, 2012A 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.
Dec 1st, 2011Thats where I had my first Irish Wake was in Pennsicola, Today's my birthday, thanks for the recipe, Think I'll have one !!!
Nov 29th, 2011This 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.
Aug 8th, 2011Had one at McGuire's in Destin last week. Yum Yum. Buying ingredients to make them at home. My new favorite drink!
Mar 12th, 2011I 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.
Dec 23rd, 2010Had 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.
Jun 25th, 2010drank three yesterday and man they sneak up on you quick. AWSOME my new favorite drink.
Apr 27th, 2010I havent tried this yet but YIPES! . . . I'm a pretty seasoned drinker, and this drink sounds to me like "the new ride at six flags" lol I JUST GOTTA TRY IT!
