Review:

Irish whiskey-laced lightly spiced zesty sweet and sour orange and lime.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created at the Bang Bang bar in Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin Ireland. Unsurprisingly, this riff on a Mai Tai was originally based on Teeling Small Batch Irish whiskey.

"Redleg" is a pejorative term to refer to poor white immigrants to the Caribbean islands, particularly Irish immigrants to Barbados forced to work the sugar plantations during the 17th and 18th centuries. The name derives from their sunburnt fair-skinned legs due the strength of the tropical sun.

The injustices suffered by Irish immigrants are remembered in the ballad To Hell or Barbados and in the title of the June 2007 studio album by Irish singer-songwriter Damien Dempsey.
