After one man launched a wheelie bin during a Twelfth of July parade, a bar in Warrenpoint launched a new ‘Windy Smasher’ cocktail inspired by the events in the Holylands in Belfast that day.
No 7 Duke Street in Warrenpoint is the bar behind the hilarious ‘Windy Smasher’ cocktail creation that features both an Irish tricolour and a Union Jack poking out from a mini wheelie bin.
The cocktail comes as a result of an altercation involving a wheelie bin that occurred in the Holylands in Belfast during a Twelfth of July march.
An interesting creation – the ‘Windy Smasher’
The Northern Ireland bar responsible for the ‘Windy Smasher’ cocktail is No 7 Duke Street in Warrenpoint. They posted a photo of the hilarious cocktail on social media, saying, “Our little tongue-in-cheek take on last week’s fun and games in Belfast.”
The cocktail features both an Irish tricolour and a Union Jack sticking out of a mini wheelie bin. The bar posted, “Our secret recipe has a double shot of Rum. Dash of bitters is optional.”
The post was met with much laughter and praise with comments like, “absolutely brilliant!!” while another response to the post said, “Broken glass included?”
The event that inspired the cocktail – an altercation on the Twelfth
The ‘Windy Smasher’ cocktail was launched following events in the Holylands in Belfast during this year’s Twelfth of July celebrations. A social media clip was circulating showing an altercation between a resident of the Holylands and a band.
In the video that went viral, a man can be seen running from this home, which has an Irish tricolour hanging from an upstairs window, and throwing a bin at the band.
The band quickly surround the house as the man runs back inside. They throw a larger bin at the downstairs window, smashing it.
Police arrive on the scene and remove the wheelie bin that inspired No 7 Duke Street’s newest creation. Will you be heading to the bar to try one?
