How to Make a Raging Irishman
3/4 of a pint of Flying Dog's Raging Bitch Belgian IPA beer
1 shot of Bunratty Potcheen
Drop the shot of potcheen into the beer glass. Drink immediately. You can down it in one gulp or sip it to your heart's content.
Only recently legal in Ireland, where it is produced, potcheen is basically Irish moonshine. A clear liquor that has an initially harsh flavor which mellows out to notes of green apple, it's a unique liquor. Chris "Iggy" Ichniowski, Blarney Stone Pub in Fell's Point's general manager, was introduced to potcheen after some friends brought him a bottle from Ireland.
