What To Drink: The Big Ginger. This drink was popularized by The Local, an Irish pub in Minneapolis (one of the 50 best in America). It consists of a hearty portion of Jameson, ginger ale, and lime and lemon wedges. It's a simple stomach-and-nerves settler that will complement any meal. Have one to steel yourself for the rest of the night. It's about to get drastic.
