Before I get into the actual post, I’d like to begin by sharing with you why we had a little “St. Patrick’s Day Redo”. It’s actually quite simple, the real St. Patrick’s Day seemed to be pretty uneventful. So me, being the Irish girl I am, had to have a proper celebration.
I’m not a huge fan of Irish Car Bomb’s from the bar. But let me tell you, making them at home is a completely different story.
Guinness Drought Beer
Jameson Irish Whiskey
Pour Jameson into shot glass about 3/4 full
Pour 1/4 Bailey’s into shot glass to top off
Note: You can adjust these measurements to your personal taste. One of the benefits of homemade.
Pour Guinness into larger glass, filling it up to just be slightly taller than the shot glass
Drop the shot glass into the beer
If you have never had an Irish Car Bomb before, trust me, you want to take it slow, you’ll begin feeling it pretty quickly.
BTW, I was cooking some corned beef. I have this old recipe that my mother uses, and it is hands down, the best recipe ever!!
I apologize for not taking a picture of my actual meal, after a few Irish Car Bomb’s, I didn’t even think about it. This photo was the closest I could find, mine looked better though.
I’ve been requested to make it again next weekend, so if we can find a good cut of meat at a reasonable price, I promise I’ll take a photo!
