This Insane New Mixed Drink Is Guaranteed To Give You A Killer Hangover
The drink is called The Badger, and for the life of me, I can't imagine how anyone first came up with this wild cocktail creation in the first place.
Nonetheless, patrons of the Marine Boathouse Bar, located in the English town of Skegness, are currently going crazy for a drink consisting of a Smirnoff Ice base and a Guinness stout top.
Behold, The Badger.
Now serving the 'Badger' a bottle of Smirnoff Ice, carefully topped up with creamy extra cold Guinness! #youngfarmerspreparation!!!!!!!! March 4th, 5th and 6th at The Marine Boathouse Skegness! Posted by Marine Boathouse Skegness on Thursday, February 11, 2016
The cocktail's namesake is based on the badger's short legs and vibrant, black-and-white streaks on its face. Makes sense, I guess.

Marine Boathouse bartender Samantha Bartlett is credited with creating the concoction, and she's still a bit in awe of how the drink's popularity went up.
She reportedly said,
I am totally shocked with the interest and publicity that we have received! The pub trade is something that myself and family are extremely passionate about and we are very proud of our pub in Skeggy! So here's to 'The Badger' bottoms up!
I enjoy a pint of Guinness as much as the next beer head, but I haven't had a Smirnoff Ice since college, and that wasn't even by choice. I can only imagine the hangover three of these would produce.
Try one, or more than one, this weekend -- if you dare.
