Forget the usual Irish Pub and make a beeline for The Wild Rover in Surry Hills. The little brother to Grandma's Bar (or should that be grandson?), is taking over the Irish drinking scene with a touch of New York chic and unusual cocktails.
Why not try 'The Root of the Earth', which is a tequila based concoction and is shaken with fresh beetroot juice, lime and grapefruit bitters. For the whiskey lovers wanting to dabble in a cocktail, the staff favourite is the 'Irish Penicillin' and is made up of Irish whiskey, lemon, honey, ginger with a splash or peated scotch whisky. It's a good craic.
