A stiff mix of half a pint of Guinness and the same amount of barley wine, which the blacksmith saw as the ideal way of ending a day of labour. The cocktail version, though slightly more sophisticated, is equally delightful.
- Brandy – 1 part
- Drambuie – 1 part
- Crème de Cafe – 1 part
- Ice Cubes
- Quarter-fill a mixing glass with ice cubes, followed by the brandy and then the other ingredients.
- Stir well, though there is no need to strain this cocktail.
- Put some more ice into a lowball glass.
- Pour the drink.
Note: A blacksmith is best served on the rocks.
