Writer’s Block

“Sometimes it happens to the best of us, no matter what you try you can’t seem to finish writing that text, email, novel, newspaper column, even the inspiration behind a cocktail.”



50ml Writer’s Tears Irish Whiskey

15ml homemade stout syrup

2 dashes Adam Elmegirab’s Spanish bitters

Stout Syrup


Stout Syrup: Take a chocolate flavoured stout (we used Buried at Sea) and mix 2 parts stout with 1-part sugar. Stir to remove all the gas from the stout. Bottle and keep refrigerated. Syrup will hold for 3 weeks.



Pour ingredients into a mixing glass, fill the mixing glass with ice and stir. Pour the ingredients from the mixing glass into a mini-glass bottle and place the bottle into a hollowed out book. Serve with an old-fashioned glass with a large ice ball and an orange zest.
