Cocktails on the Tom Dunne Show: Finagle’s Folly

A cocktail famous 'from here to Orion'...

Tonight, Sean Maguire from The Liquor Rooms will be joining Tom to make a cocktail inspired by the upcoming release of Star Trek Beyond.

Sean says: 

The ingredients are representative of both the old James T. Kirk and the new incarnation. We pay homage to Canadian William Shatner who solidified the character as a television and film icon, which we represent with a healthy dose of Canadian Club. With the recent reboot of the franchise we have Chris Pine, who delivers a fresh new performance to the role, represented by the pine forward spryness and the effervescence of our tonic water.

The name is taken from a cocktail that was served to Captain Kirk in the original series. After Kirk gets replaced by a new super-computer the good Doctor McCoy soothes Kirk’s bruised ego with his own special concoction: Finagle’s Folly, a cocktail which he brags is famous from “here to Orion.”


  • 50ml Canadian Club Whiskey
  • 30ml Pine reduction
  • 10ml Honeysuckle Syrup
  • 15ml Lemon Juice
  • 2 dashes Dandelion/ Burdock Bitters
  • Poachers Rosemary and Orange Tonic Bitters


Mix all ingredients and serve over ice in tall glass. Top with Poachers Rosemary and Orange Tonic Bitters and garnish with pine sprig and lemon zest.


Sean will be making the cocktail live on the Tom Dunne Show, tonight from 9pm
