St. Patrick's Day 2016
Poitín fuelled piss up
We might be a long way from the land of the four-leaf clover here in Bethnal Green, but we’ve still got plenty of Poitín, Irish Whiskey and Irish bartenders
We had a craic’ing night here in The Sun Tavern, bit of an alternative one as there were no Guinness hats only Teeling Caps!
We teamed up with Bán Poitín to come up with an ace bespoke cocktail menu, like the Galway Bay, Power to you Elbow, Mountain Dew and the Bán & Black, split over tankard and short style cocktails with Dave Mulligan behind the bar most of the night!
Fourpure Brewing Co. provided us with their sweet and refreshing Oatmeal stout so no one was left out.
We thought since we’re in the East End, we’d bring a bit of fusion for the food front and do traditional Bethnal Green style Pie & Mash from G. Kelly’s Pie & Mash shop across the road and it went down a treat (seeing as the Irish still love potatoes haha!).
We also did a little video interview with Theresa from G’ Kelly’s Pie & Mash if you want to check it out, she is pretty comedy
We also had a live Folk band to kick it off and DJ’s to carry on through the night. All in all it was a great one, by far the most packed we’ve ever been, and definitely topped last year, which we thought might not be possible given how good that was!
Here are some of the Bán Poitín cocktails that were being served on the night…
Bán Poitín, Homemade Lime Cordial, Citric Acid & a Bay Leaf
Power to your Elbow
Bán Poitín, Amaro Montenegro, Black Sheep Espresso & Fourpure Oatmeal Stout
Bán Poitín, Lillet Blanc, Tripple Sec, Violette & Lemon Juice
Don’t miss next year’s St. Patrick’s Day at The Sun Tavern, Poitin and Whiskey bar London!
