Today I am going to share the recipe of Irish Car Bomb at home. You must have tried this shot at many bars. But making it at home is a fun experience.

On my visit to a bar on weekend with my friends, I noticed the bartender preparing them and serving it in a unique style. I just love the way the Irish Cream shot was dropped into the whiskey glass. It looked spectacular and tempting to be sipped. I could not resist to give this shot a try and ordered one. I loved the taste and wanted to make it at home. So I got the recipe from the internet and tried my hands on it.

Irish Car Bomb can be made at home with just three ingredients. One is the Irish cream, the second is the Irish whiskey and the third is the Guinness beer. To make it, pour the Irish cream in the shot glass and top it with whiskey. Take a pint glass and add beer to it. Drop the shot glass into the pint glass and drink it immediately.

You need not shake up the ingredients together or perform any difficult process. All you need to do is pour the ingredients into the glasses following a specific manner discussed below. But there are many other tea recipes that we’ve covered in our blog. You should definitely check them as well.
