An Irish Car Bomb is a popular American bomb shot cocktail, similar to a boilermaker, made by dropping a shot of Irish cream
and whiskey into a glass of stout. Its a medium strength drink and is fairly easy to make.
The "Irish" in the name refers to the drink's Irish ingredients; typically Guinness stout, Baileys Irish Cream
, and Powers Irish Whiskey.
The term "car bomb" combines reference to its "bomb shot" style as well as the noted car bombings of Northern Ireland's Troubles.
