Dual-chambered beer-glasses for mixing the perfect black-and-tan

Are Black and Tans so hard to make that you need a $31.25 glass?

Have I been doing it wrong?

Hey, I had one of these when I was a kid! Only mine was plastic, came with a double-barreled straw, and cost $3.

It was ostensibly for drinking two different kinds of juice at once. I think I used it twice and then abandoned when I realized that it was easier to just put two different kinds of juice in a normal fucking glass.

So, yeah, a ripoff at a tenth the price. The things people will pay money for…

Please don’t call it a Black and Tan around anyone Irish

Everyone knows that this isn’t for Black and Tans at all – it’s for a more efficient breakfast: orange juice in one half and milk in the other.

Science has shown they have to combine just before they hit your mouth for maximum health.


#6

Please forgive my American Ignorance, but what might a similar beverage be called in Ireland?


#7

I’ve always thought that was an unfortunate name for an unfortunate drink. There’s no accounting for taste. Nice glasses, but really, gravity does all the work.


#8

Here’s why it wouldn’t be called a Black and Tan in Ireland, except maybe by protestants.


#9

Breakfast.


#10

Apparently “half and half”


#11

Looks like both sides are going to slosh into your mouth at the same time and work like a mixed drink, where a nicely poored black and tan will have some alternating flavors from start to finish- it’s a journey.
But this concept is nice looking, somebody will buy it and like it.


#12

My thought exactly. Jigs? Where I come from we just pour the stuff. Admittedly, its not Ireland.


#13

Filed under: More crap to stuff the cabinets with and never use.


#14

My girlfriend’s family is from Galway and when she went there Black and Tans were a pint of Guiness with a shot (or more!) of Irish whiskey.


#15

Can you get Irish Car Bombs in Ireland?


#16

Only if you can get away with calling two light beers a “Twin Towers” in NYC.


#17

For $31 I can get a used Soxhlet extractor


#18

If you are going to do this you might as well just mix them together with a spoon.


#19

I understand that asking for an Irish Car Bomb in Ireland is a far worse idea than asking for a black and tan.

That is the most revolting thing I’ve heard all day.

I’ll stick to my Black and Tans for breakfast thank you very much.
