Book and Irish Mermaid header

Dear Bartenders as you know I am on a quest to spread the word of THE IRISH MERMAID, and turn it into a Modern Classic. I’ve decided to run a fun Competition… Worldwide.

To help me run this Competition, I’ve asked Adam MacDonald from The Long Pour to help out and also to spread the word about it.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to send me a photo of the THE IRISH MERMAID listed either on your main MenuON YOUR MENU SPECIALS, OR ON YOUR HOUSE SPECIALS BOARD!

The best description and the best picture of the cocktail will win a limited edition copy of The Long Pour.


It would be sincerely appreciated if you could add the author’s name on your list.

We have 5 to give away, so we will be making a top 5 list of the best Irish Mermaid menu descriptions and picture found all over the world!

Read more about the Book HERE and HERE!

For inspiration about the story and the making of my drink, read more about the IRISH MERMAID HERE!

..and to get you even more inspired:

The drink is basically going to look the same for everyone, the only difference might be in the drinkware used, creativity in the presentation, on the rocks vs straight up, technique used, your personality shining through inside and outside the Cocktail…and other aspects, well.. you are Bartenders, you know what I’m talking about!

How about photos of “THE IRISH MERMAID with Celebrities” or “THE IRISH MERMAID on a Vacation” acting as if the drink is taking selfies of herself!! There’s so much that can be done.

Let your creativity go wild but RESPECTING the soul of the drink itself and it’s recipe!

Ready, set, GO!
