Irish Car Bomb

Irish people are the ultimate party animals, so it is not surprising that they’d come up with a great party cocktail. “Irish Car Bomb”, however, was not made in Ireland. It was made by an American with Irish roots. 

A mixologist named Charles Burke Cronin Oat made this crazy concoction in the late 70s. The man has since regretted and apologized for the insensitive name, but the popularity of the drink has soared, and the name is now notorious and unchangeable.

Irish Car Bomb tastes like a boozy mug of chocolate milk. You can make an Irish Car Bomb with only three ingredients.

Ingredients

  •  6 ounces of Irish stout

  • ¾ ounces of Irish cream

  • ¼ ounces of Irish whiskey

Method

  • Grab a beer mug and pour in the Irish stout. Do not pour too much beer in the mug. You are supposed to drop the shot glass into the mug so make sure it doesn’t have too much beer, otherwise, it will overflow.

  • Nest, prepare the shot glass. Pour ¾ oz of Irish cream (like Baileys) into the shot glass.

  • Now layer this with Irish whiskey, but you have to be careful. Pour your whiskey into the glass using the back of a spoon so that it slowly drizzles in.

  • Drop the shot glass into the beer mug and enjoy! The liquids will mix and might curdle, but don’t worry as that is how it should be.
