Irish Car Bomb

1/2 shot Irish Cream
1/2 shot Irish Whiskey
3/4 pint Irish Stout


  • layer the Irish Cream and the Whiskey in the Shot Glass.
  • Drop the filled Shot Glass into the Stout.
  • Drink immediately before the Irish Cream curdles.

NOTES: Nearly 100% of the time, this is made with Guinness Stout, Bailey’s Irish Cream and Jameson Whiskey. I however prefer St. Brendan’s to Bailey’s.

The Irish Car Bomb dates to 1979 in Connecticut USA. It refers to the Irish ingredients and to the car bombings of the PIRA on 21 Jul 1972 in Belfast (22 bombings in one day). One can imagine that some folks may be offended by the name as a result.

  1. Is there a similar drink called the Belfast Bomber Baileys and Brandy?

    • I’ve always heard of a Belfast Bomber being that too. Most folks use a Cognac Brandy–I’m not sure if there’s a traditional “brand” for the Brandy like folks who use Baileys for the Irish Cream.
