So, Fallon & Byrne have this upstairs dining room, right, and guess what? It’s not stuffy and expensive or exclusive at all! Not that we had any preconceived notions or anything. Who, us?

1940’s style in decor, it’s spacious and bright and it features a gorgeous pewter steel bar. It’s at this bar that myself and fellow Rampie, Sinead, plonk ourselves for an evening of cocktail tasting. Free cocktails and canapes? There were Seán and Sinead shaped holes in the doors of our respective workplace doors that evening! Still bright at 6 o’clock on a Thursday evening, we find ourselves settling in the idea of an early drink with a minimum of adjustment.

There to sample their newly-launched cocktail menu, we figure the best way to review fairly is to write up each cocktail individually and set to some meticulous note-taking.

A Mojito and a Sazerac

First up is the Sazerac.

A robust, masculine cocktail served in a Mad Men-style whiskey tumbler. No Ice. A slice of orange peel. It’s orangey, it’s congnac, it’s a cocktail you can drink and not feel like you’re on your Super Sweet Sixteenth. Definitely one for the after-work gentlemen in a blazer, not a drink you could knock back all night though. 3.5/5

 

Next for the taste test is a traditional Mojito.

Zesty and ice-cold, it is a polished take on an old reliable and we have plenty of amusement watching the barmen mixing with finesse. An easy 4/5.

 

The Exchequer Fizz catches our eye when another patron orders one and it sits on the bar in a tall glass, looking cold and inviting. Absolut mandarin, elderflower cordial and lemon juice it’s not quite as sparkling as expected, but nonetheless fruity and pleasant. We give it 3.5/5.

 

Whiskey, sugar, honey and lemon make up a Pappy Honeysuckle. This one is the perfect cure if you’re feeling a bit fluish. It was very tasty but definitely the sweetest of the cocktails on the night. 3/5.

 

The Passion fruit & Jalapeño Margararitas

The Passionfruit & Jalapeño Margarita is the clear and definite winner all ’round. It shouldn’t work in a cocktail but by Christ it does. Jalapeño infused tequila coupled with some fresh passion fruit give the pink tinted, passion fruit pip peppered drink a spicy and sweet kick, which really comes alive after the second sip. These were definitely the most popular drink of the night with assembled company all singing it’s praises, it alone is well worth returning for. It definitely sparked the most conversation amongst all the foodies on the night. 5/5.

 

Fallon & Byrne run a 2-for-1 offer on their cocktails on Mondays and Tuesdays. Individually a €10 cocktail isn’t cheap but on a two for one basis €5 cocktails of such tastiness can’t be beat. The menu also encompasses a bevvy of 12 cocktails, only 5 of which we actually had time to taste. They deserve a special nod in particular for not limiting their menu when it comes to special offers on cocktails, as many bars do.

    The Sazerac reads like ‘The Sarlacc’ and so it gets two nerdy thumbs up from me.

    I thought that myself when I first saw it! I love watching people make cocktails too, like some idiot thinking ‘God, I’d so be able to do that, look it’s simple!’

    “Definitely one for the after-work gentlemen in a blazer, not a drink you could knock back all night though” The first part of the sentence sounds like me then the second half of the sentence sounds like a challenge.

    Great review, lads and I wholeheartedly concur – the Pappy Honeysuckle is a glass of subtle deliciousness too. That being said, they’re virgin cocktails aren’t half bad either. I’ll certainly be back.
