Peppermint Patties

Peppermint Patties done right. Drink for dessert and liquid confidence. Plus, freshens yer breath after all that bacon.

┬áIn a cocktail shaker filled with ice, pour a few ounces of Rumple Minze Peppermint Schnapps (100 proof, don’t waste yer time with the other ones)

Add a bit o’ Bailey’s Original. About half the shaker should be filled at this point, with more schnapps than Bailey’s.

Squeeze in some chocolate.

Fill the rest of the shaker with vodka. Shake. Serve.

Terrific in a flask.


Bacon Cake

For those who said it couldn’t be done. Sweet, savory, and topped with alcohol – just like my women.

1.) Grab yer favorite Just-Add-Water pancake mix, and just add water. Use about 3 cups of mix, the correct portion of water, then throw in some oil for good luck. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan, and cook until done. Drink half a cup of whiskey.

2.) Pull apart an entire pack of quality Maple bacon, and weave together like a pie crust (or so my woman says). Put foil on a cookie sheet, and put the weave on this. Throw some brown sugar on that shit, and put in the oven at about 400 degrees until bacon is cooked.

3.) Make a SAUCE. Mix 1 stick of butter and about a cup of brown sugar in a sauce pan. Cook until sugar dissolves. Add some vanilla, and the remaining half cup o’ whiskey.

4.) Slap Bacon Weave atop Pancake Cake. Pour whiskey sauce on top. Serve with whiskey.


Does anyone out there know how to get rid of this damn flower? It is not very Fergal MacDermott.

Man Chow Breakfast

I had this for breakfast this morning with a pitcher of whiskey. It was a good way to start me day.









Since I don’t go to the store ever (I’m not a woman), this was all the cereal I had. I mixed 2 cups of each in a big ol’ pot with me bare hands.









This here mixture is roughly 2 cups o’ chocolate chips, 1 cup o’ peanut butter and 1/2 a cup of fresh churned butter from Mrs. O’Land-O’ Lakes next door. I melted it over the fire and poured it over the cereal. Then I dumped all that mess into a sack with a great deal of powdered sugar and gave it a good shake.











There’s me breakfast. Serves one. Now I’m ready for a long day o’ pickin potatoes (and women).


Hello. I am Fergal MacDermott. I am currently sitting in The Golden Lion, which is my favorite bar, smoking lounge, restaurant and gathering place of loose women. I enjoy eating, smoking, drinking and consorting with the fairer sex. I am beginning this blog at the suggestion of my bartender and godfather, Murtagh O’Malley. We are displaced Irishmen trying to make our mark on America. He suggested that I record my experiences with cooking, drinkology and womanizing, and I have decided to do so on this blog. I hope you enjoy irresponsibly.

They’re after me Lucky Charms (yes we really say this in the motherland)-
