Mickey Finn. It’s a name you know, but you might not even know why.
The name is synonymous with evil deeds done in the dark, and with good reason! Not too long ago, when someone passed out after imbibing an alcoholic drink, people often said they were “slipped a Mickey.” But few know how this phrase came about. But here’s the history of that ignoble saying and how it started – with one of the most notorious bartenders that ever mixed a drink. His name was Michael Finn, but his friends all called him Mickey.Add a comment
