Included in the special is the Drunken Irishman ($8), made with Jameson, Guinness stout reduction infused with mint and a fresh mint sprig. It’s aromatic, sweet, refreshing and subtly strong. The taste is similar to a Mint Julep, but the Guinness takes the edge off the sweetness, making it that much easier to sip.
