Behind the Drink with John Lermayer
Ok first the Guinness. The one and only time I visited Ireland I noticed that in the winter the Irish often put port in their pints to warm them up. I tried it some years later and liked it a lot, so started adding nutmeg and spices as well on really cold days.
When I visited Jamaica for the first time I was shocked how popular Guinness was there as the Jamaicans believe Guinness is liquid Viagra and the more you drink the more likely you are to have boys as children.
For the flip I thought I would mold the Irish method with Jamaican flavor by adding rum, port, spice and then cocktail nerd it our with a whole egg and bitters
For the song I just figured it was some rock star shit to put beer, wine, rum and a whole egg all in one glass. BRAP!!!
