How To Make An Irish Car Bomb

Illustration for article titled How To Make An Irish Car Bomb

It's St. Patrick's Day and we've been looking for fun content we can share with you related both to cars and our favorite March 17th celebratory activity. DeLoreans? Meh. Irish Car Bombs? Blarney-riffic!

If you're like us, then you've probably had an Irish Car Bomb before. We were pretty confident that we could make some that would knock yer socks off, but to give you the most accurate mixing of our three favorite types o' booze, we went the official route and received a true recipe from

According to

3/4 pint Guinness® stout
1/2 shot Bailey's® Irish cream
1/2 shot Jameson® Irish whiskey

Add the Bailey's and Jameson to a shot glass, layering the Bailey's on the bottom. Pour the Guinness into a pint glass or beer mug 3/4 of the way full and let settle. Drop the shot glass into the Guinness and chug. If you don't drink it fast enough it will curdle and increasingly taste worse.


Not surprisingly, it's an easy one to make, but also very easy to get wrong — as evidenced by last year's unintentional shoe-soaking ab workout. Now on to the good stuff. If you want to drink like a true Jalop Irishman (though lesser men will get alcohol poisoning and die), here's the portion size for 10 Irish Car Bombs:

7.5 pint Guinness® stout
5 shot Bailey's® Irish cream
5 shot Jameson® Irish whiskey

Don't worry telling us about it tomorrow. If you do it correctly, you won't even remember. Have fun, be safe and Happy St. Paddy's Day! [via drinksmixer, Flickr]

Sounds pretty nice. Guinness is easily the best chugging beer, despite its reputation as "heavy" to a lot of people.
