A bar in Warrenpoint has created a “tongue-in-cheek” cocktail inspired by a dispute in Belfast over rubbish bins on July 12.
o Down Establishment Number 7 Duke Street said they created their ‘Windy Smasher’ drink as part of a ‘recording of last week’s fun and games in Belfast’.
The event they are referring to, of course, involved an altercation in which a rubbish bin was thrown towards the Bangor Protestant Boys Flute Band as they paraded through the Holyland area of south Belfast on the 12th.
Footage that quickly circulated online on the day of the incident appeared to show a home occupant throwing a trash can at the band as they passed in front of the property.
A 29-year-old man was formally warned about the incident and another 46-year-old man was arrested and later released on police bail.
The bar unveiled its alcoholic version of the infamous incident with a “secret recipe” featuring a double shot of rum.
The finishing touch is that the drink is served in a small black container instead of a traditional glass.
As a sign of the cross-community spirit, the drink is adorned with both a Union flag and an Irish tricolor, as they jokingly said, “Sure if you can’t laugh”.
Social media users were quick to spot the fun side of the humorous creation, with many calling it “brilliant,” and the post itself has been shared hundreds of times online.
