ever have an irish car bomb? it's a boilermaker, made by putting a shot of bushmill's or jameson's into a pint o' guiness. that'll get the blarney started....
Yep, made plenty of mead. Even have a bronze medal from a national competition to show for one of them. That particular one was of the margarita persuasion. Honey, limes, oranges, and agave nectar. All fermented out to taste like a sweet margarita. Never had it in pubs, but did bring back a macadamia blossom mead from Maui that was very nice.
Never had the car bomb that I can remember. I've done boilermakers before, but never recall one with guiness.
