Tony Barry says of his drink, “A ‘hug from Mary’ is a hospitality ritual among the bartenders of Cork. Mary is owner, bartender & host of the oldest family pub in Cork - The Castle Inn. The Castle has no television, Wi-Fi or phones; the only noise you can hear is chatting amongst friends. When you are served a cold drink by Mary it is the perfect welcome. I also grew up working in a family pub and understand the importance of tradition. My Hug from Mary cocktail reflects flavours found in any Irish bar, my bartending career, a salute to Irish bartenders and, of course, Mary!”
