Perfect Drink® recipe

Irish Car Bomb

The Irish Car Bomb is a typical drop shot similar to a boilermaker. It gets its name from the Irish ingredients, as well as the "bomb-like" dropping of the shot glass and reference to the car bombings that plagued Northern Ireland. Due to the latter some bartenders may take offense and refuse to serve this particular drop shot.
