FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

What is Aftershock, and what do its Blue and Red variants taste like?

Aftershock is a type of liqueur known for its unique flavors and thermal reaction, which creates a warming effect when consumed.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

The Nasty Irish cocktail is best served cold in a highball glass. Given its distinctive combination of Guinness, whiskey, and Aftershock, serving it cold helps to meld the diverse flavors smoothly.

With an alcohol content of 15.13%, the Nasty Irish is slightly higher in alcohol by volume (ABV) than many classic cocktails, which typically range between 10% to 15% ABV. This makes it a stronger choice, likely due to the inclusion of both whiskey and two types of Aftershock liqueur.
