Once in a while, we miss the Eire on the corner of 75th Street and Washington that was home to Kennedy's. But when our nostalgia creeps up, we go to Remedy, the fresh upstart that this year took over the beloved Waldo bar's final resting place. And we order the Feisty Irishman. It's a sweet, sour, spicy cocktail, made with Tullamore Dew and jalapeño-honey syrup and finished with lemon, then served with a jalapeño garnish. Yeah, it's for mature taste buds — much as Remedy is. Fiery but smooth, bitter but sweet. We drink it alone after a long day while catching replays of a KU football game on a TV behind the bar. For a second, it's a throwback to Kennedy's. A few sips, a fond remembrance, then back to being grown-ups.
