In some ways there is a bit of a Mai Tai like flavor thanks to the almonds playing big in the drink. Or, perhaps, an almond daiquiri.

The Fire Whip, smells a bit like a candle store--Jennifer thought it smelled like a doctors office. Not sure where that comes from, but we think the cinnamon is the big aroma on the Fire Whip. The shooter itself has a little different flavor than a standard shot of fireball and a leaves a slight numbing feeling with a delayed whipped cream finish.

The Irish Wake, what makes it Irish? The only thing we can think of is the high amount of alcohol and the stereotype that Irish know how to drink (they do have a holiday named after it after all).
