When I joined Russell House

When I joined Russell House Tavern in 2013, the drink was still on the menu but with Jameson. The name revolves around how some thought it a sacrilege to mix with Irish whiskey, but those in the know had dubbed this one the "Sacrilicious." I believe that the drink finally left the menu in 2014 coinciding with John leaving the bar team (there was a tradition that your drink generally left the menu along with you).
