English pub invents new way to serve Guinness and names it 'The Badger'

A PUB in Skegness, England has come up with a new way of serving Guinness and named it 'The Badger'.

The Badger is made of half a pint of Smirnoff Ice and half a pint of Guinness, with the latter floating on top of the pint.

The Marine Boathouse pub in Skegness shared pictures of the controversial cocktail on its Facebook page over the weekend to huge interest.

Opinions seem to be divided down the middle on whether the drink is a stroke of genius or a crime against Ireland's most famous stout.

One Facebook user, Steve Howard, called the drink "a waste of good Guinness", while others were eager to have a pint of The Badger themselves.

But the topic that perplexed most people was the how the Guinness floated on top.
