Traditional Irish Car Bomb

This recipe for a Traditional Irish Car Bomb was submitted by David of Norfolk, Virginia.

Traditional Irish Car BombTraditional Irish Car Bomb Recipe: Guinness pint glass, fresh out of the freezer (not one of those fancy new Budweiser or Sam Adams glasses)

  • Shot glass. Round. 1.5 ounces.
  • 1/2 pint of Guinness. Preferably fresh from the tap. If not, go with the can, not the bottle. Gives you a better pour. And pour yourself two. Don't go putting half a can of Guinness back in the fridge.
  • 3/4 ounces of Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 3/4 ounces of Jameson's Irish Whiskey
Pour the half shot of Bailey first. Then SLOWLY pour the Jameson on top.

Take the glass of Guinness in your left hand (after the head has settled out) and the shot glass in your right. Pick them up.

Give an inappropriate toast about someone's mom/wife/sister/girlfriend (or dad/husband/brother/boyfriend, depending on the crowd and the circumstances).

Touch glasses with everyone about to drink. Smile (masks your fear). Tap both glasses back on the table/bar.

Then drop the shot glass into the Guinness, lift the Guinness glass to your lips, tilt your head back and drink. Quickly.

Guinness should hit you first. Then some Jameson's. Then capped off with the Irish Cream.

(Safety note to the rookies: shot glasses are heavy, if you drink like a horse, with your lips pulled back and your teeth exposed, you're likely to chip a tooth when the shot glass slides forward. Keep your upper lip covering your pearly whites to avoid a visit to the dentist).

Loudly declare how wonderful that tasted. Boast about being the first to finish. Grab some clean glasses and challenge everyone to another round.

Slainte! (Gaelic for "to your health!")
