Black Velvet and Irish Flag
Conor O'Neill's on South Main
Street offers delightful layered
drinks appealing to both the taste
buds and the eyes.
As its name implies, the Irish
Flag shot consists of three layers:
Creme de Menthe on the bottom,
Bailey's Irish Cream in the middle
and Grand Marnier on top.
One of the greatest things about
this shot is that the chaser is includ-
ed at the bottom. The shot is a
creamy, minty blend that costs a
cool five dollars.
Another option to warm you up
after the cold walk to Main is the
BlackVelvet. Also a layered drink,
it sits in a nicely sized 20-ounce
glass for a mere four and a half dol-

tion or if you cannot hear over the
noise of the bar crowd, hereis a sam-
ple of a few drinks you can find in
Ann Arbor for the adventurous party-
goer who wants to break out of the
traditional beer mold.

Blue Ferrari
The Necto, located on Liberty
Street near Borders, has by far
the most exciting drink, which
you should treat more like busi-
ness than pleasure. This caution
is due to the fact that the drink is
literally on fire and should be
swallowed quickly, like a shot.
The Blue Ferrari is a cool mix
of Blue Curacao, 151 and cream
with Khalua, which should be
consumed before the two thin
straws melt in the flames.
By the time you get to the bot-
tom of the martini glass, your
throat is warm and honestly, you
might not even remember drink-
ing it. Five dollars is a small
price to pay for so much fun.
