Flaming British Sheep Shagger (The Drink)

British, Personal with tags: , , Add comments

I turned 21 when I was in Minneapolis. It was a little strange “being able to drink” since I had already been able to drink for years in England. I still think that the age for drinking and driving should be flipped in the US, mainly as I saw kids going nuts in college as it was “so naughty”.

The morning after my birthday celebrations I woke up groggy, laying without clothes on the floor of my bedroom. The last thing I remembered was getting a drink at Kierans.

That drink was a special concoction, recorded by an old friend Brian O’Neilly:

Flaming Sheep Shagger



Layer in order (Bailey’s at the bottom of the glass) in a shot glass.

Now, I swear that the Irish bar tender heard I was a brit, and put in some “green leprechaun” nonsense. Whatever it was, I apparently went nuts. I started to babble on singing about Rainbow which confused everyone as Minnesotans only know of Rainbow the grocery store. I also started talking about Braveheart, and god knows what else. I am happy to have lost those memories I am sure.

If anyone offers you this drink, be warned!

    Wish I could’ve seen that! I’m not much of a Rum lover (in fact I can’t stand it) and I’m long past 21 – but with a name like that I think I’ll have to try it. Keiran’s has long been a favorite hangout for my in-laws (100% Irish by descent) and I’ve had any number of Guiness there.

    The drink is actually pretty good. Once you set the rum on fire and down it, you barely taste the room. You get kind of a hot feeling in your mouth, then the goldschlager hits you and you get a cinnamon burn, then your mouth gets coated with Baileys. After that all is well.

    And, Dion, the Green Leprechaun was a separate drink that was I believe after the Sheep Shagger…
