This butcher is selling vodka Red Bull sausages for your barbecue


If you fancy a twist on your regular BBQ this summer, you’ll probably be excited (or possibly terrified) to hear the news that a Northern Irish butcher is giving customers an offbeat alternative to your average hot dog – with vodka red bull flavoured sausages. 

Maguire Meats, who are based in Irvinestown in County Fermanagh, have started featuring the bangers as part of their regular roster of (non-booze and energy drink related) meats.

If you don’t fancy vodka and red bull with your fry up (and frankly, we’re not sure if we blame you), Maguires have also come up with another alternative: Captain Morgan and Club orange sausages. Fanta sausages, basically.


Owner Keelan Maguire told Belfast Live that he came up with the idea when he tried to come up with the “craziest” flavour he could think of. 

“We gave it ago and it worked out very well and they’re very popular,” he said, the madman. “We also added a spicy beef one which is doing well too.”

“It is something different for the BBQ this summer. We have a few other ideas up our sleeve so keep an eye out.”

And commenters’ reactions have been...decidedly mixed. 

“Think I'd like to keep my drinks & sausage separate đź¤” Not sure how I feel about this lol,” wrote one; others referred to it as a “game changer” and said it was “time for a BBQ”. 

If you fancy a boozy and extremely caffeinated fry up, Maguire will be selling the sausages at all of their Northern Irish locations.
