UFC 246 is rapidly approaching and it’s a battle of Irish whiskey vs. American beer as the Irishman, “The Notorious” Conor McGregor meets Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the January 18 pay-per-view spectacular’s main event.
It was little more than a year ago that Eire Born Spirits announced the launch of Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey. McGregor, is the founder, chairman and majority owner of the company.
His opponent, Cerrone is sponsored by one of the most popular beer companies in the U.S., Budweiser, which makes this not only a fan friendly event headlined by two extremely exciting fighters, but also a battle to see which alcoholic beverage comes out on top.
Below are a few drinks that you can make at home, or if you are going out to your favorite watering hole to watch the fights with friends, you may be able to ask the bartender to make one or two to try.
