That day when you find a cocktail named after you … The Mark Of Respect

The Mark of Respect, created by John Norrman 2014

-2 parts Teelings small batch
-1 part good tawny port
-Half a part Falernum
-2 dashes of aromatic bitters (Dead Rabbit Orinoco preferred)

Stirred, garnish with lime lest.


As John says … “This tipple was invented during the 2014 Dublin Web Summit, when the the gentleman Scot Mark Kieran Jennings (@markofrespect) walked in to the bar that was harbouring me at the time, slammed his hands in the counter and yelled in a husky, authoritative voice: “Bartender, Teelings please!”. It is also a tipple that was involved in getting me a job in The Liqour Rooms, and will be on the new drinks menu in said venue in August.”

UPDATE September 2015

Oh, and as an update … here it is available from The Liquor Rooms, Dublin!! – here is their menu.

UPDATE December 2015

Cocktail geek alert. Here’s Julio Bermejo the inventor of the Tommy’s Margarita taking a MoR home to San Francisco, and leaving a Tommy’s with John Norrman to give to me. Cocktail geek to the max.


UPDATE January 2016

Wow, it really did go further – the MoR around the world
