Dublin has an overwhelming number of pubs and bars.
And with pubs and bars comes endless drinks menus. But we've gone through them all to find the best of the best.
From fancy margaritas to classic pints of the black shtuff – this is the list you should be drankin'.
1. Pint of Guinness – Kehoe's
This one is a must.
A coming of age, a rite of passage – if you've never had a pint of the black shtuff in Kehoe's then you haven't lived.
Perfectly creamy and chilled – their pints hit the spot like no others.
2. Bloody Mary – Whitefriar Grill
Is there anything more curing than a Bloody Mary when you're viciously hungover?
When they're good, they're so good. But when they're bad? They're abysmal.
However, Whitefriar have mastered the Bloody Mary and will make it as spicy or as mild as you'd like. So cold, so refreshing, salty, spicy and tomato-y.
3. Sea Salt and Burnt Sugar Stout – The Guinness Open Gate Brewery
The Open Gate Brewery rotate their new and experimental brews every month, but this one is truly special and has been getting raving reviews ever since its arrival.
A tasty blend of salty and sweet flavours this stout will soon be gone but never forgotten.
Get some while you still can!
4. The New Market Sour – Sophie's
First of all: the view of beautiful Dublin City from this spot cannot be beaten.
Second of all: the blend of Teelings Whiskey, lemon, honey, Lillet Rouge and frothy egg whites is a work of art. Slides down your throat like liquid gold.
5. Ginger Beer – Bernard Shaw
Fresh, fizzy and superbly light, this delicious fruity drink from Hollows and Fentimans hits all the right notes. Served in the trendy Bernard Shaw with bitters and various citrus fruits, you'll find yourself walking on air after just one.
Also pairs incredibly with The Big Blue Bus pizzas. Night sorted.
6. Pornstar Martini – Meeting House
Made with Absolut vanilla vodka, passion fruit purée, vanilla sugar and prosecco – this is a cocktail that's for sure going to knock your socks off.
The Meeting House have a stellar, well-rounded cocktail menu, but this is definitely their best.
7. Espresso Martini – Bow Lane
The masters of the martini – Bow Lane blend coffee and alcohol like it's nobodies business. They are the undisputed royal family of booze, and we are their humble subjects.
The most delicious array of treats you could ever have, all poured gracefully and expertly into one handy drinking vessel.
8. Nitro Milk Stout – Sin É
On tap since April, this beer is the new kid on the block.
Pouring black with thin creamy head that maintains, this coffee has a mild coffee aroma, with a sweet chocolate taste. This will change your perspective on stout, and is the perfect drink to swim into the evening with. Sin É, you've done it again.
9. El Gato Negro – Xico
Possibly our favourite on the list – this one is a dream, preferably drank in the dark, underground settings of Xico.
A refreshing blend of Olmeca tequila, raspberry, mint lime and sparkling ginger ale.
You'll wanna drink this 5ever.
10. The Real Italian, Farrier & Draper
Tanqueray Gin, strawberry purée, delish basil, a dash of balsamic and pink peppercorns. All topped with soda water and fresh strawberry.
It may sound all over the place but it is a work of art.
It shouldn't work. But it does.
11. Maragarita – 777
King of the Margs - you haven't lived til you've been to 777 for Margarita Monday. They've got two for one on margaritas and an atmosphere hotter than Mexico City - now Mondays are something to look forward to!
Enjoy making your way through that list...
