tips, tipples & table talk.

It can only mean one thing when those out of office replies start rolling in, the June bank holiday weekend is upon us! So close you can almost taste it, here are our top picks for the weekend ahead.

Craft Beer of the Week: Fulcrum Wheat Beer

For those of you craft beer drinkers who love the mouth-watering combo that is seafood’n’spice, you’ll seriously enjoy Fulcrum Wheat Beer. New to ely gastro bar, this wheat beer offers crisp dry refreshment with subtle fruity spices. Fulcrum Wheat Beer with paella, crisp calamari or other seafood is the ultimate pairing – much like dodgy sunburn lines and the Dublin sunshine.

Cocktail of the Week: Dralion

The acrobatic sensation that is Cirque Du Soleil’s ‘Dralion’ runs Wednesday 28th – Sunday 1st at The O2 Dublin. Described as “a wonderful blend of amazing acrobatics, stunning choreography, live music”, we decided to create our own wonderful blend. This one’s with vodka, passion fruit, grenadine & lime juice to make up the Cirque Du So-Delicious Dralion cocktail.
