Blacksmith Cocktail


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


  1. Quarter-fill a mixing glass with ice cubes, followed by the brandy and then the other ingredients.
  2. Stir well, though there is no need to strain this cocktail.
  3. Put some more ice into a lowball glass.
  4. Pour the drink.
  5. Serve.

Note: A blacksmith is best served on the rocks.
