I don’t know about you but I am TIRED of the traditions of crappy beer, food and drink at the typically over-crowded “Irish bars.” At Riviera 31, you will not have to smell the disgusting brew of corn beef and cabbage while Plummer Joe is spelling out his woes and sorrows and the “new kid” just yacked on your new sneakers.


  • 2oz Bushmill Irish whiskey
  • 3/4oz lime juice
  • 1/2oz agave syrup
  • fresh mint garnish
