Beer Based Beverages

Enjoying your favourite beer is like drinking liquid gold, but once in a blue moon there's merit for kicking things up a notch by adding some extra oomph to an already delightful beverage.

Not for the faint of heart, the Irish Car Bomb will blow your socks off. The drink has been deemed offensive by those who relate it to the NRA's tactical use of car bombs, and you won't be able to order one if your heading to Ireland any time soon. But if you're a Guinness fan, give it a try locally.

It is customary to gulp down the drink after the shot glass has been added, but many bartenders are now pre-adding the ingredients due to the lurking danger of broken glass.

The Irish Car Bomb Recipe:

3/4 pint Guinness
1/2 ounce Irish cream liqueur - Usually Baileys irish cream.
1/2 ounce Irish whiskey - Usually Jameson's whiskey.

Classic Preparation:

Pour the Irish cream liqueur into a shot glass, then pour the Irish whiskey on top.
Pour the Guinness into a pint glass or beer mug 3/4 of the way full and let settle. Drop the shot glass into the Guinness and chug.

For those of you thinking that you won't be able to make it half way down before the car bomb explodes back up your esophagus, you're probably right. But there is a slightly less harsh North American rendition that might be a friendlier choice.

The Boilermaker Recipe:

1 pint Pilsener beer (Steam Whistle works nicely)
1 ounce Whiskey or Bourbon (Tennessee Whiskey is best)


Pour 1 pint of Pilsener into a tall glass and add 1 ounce of Whiskey or Bourbon. If you are enjoying it as a shot, then add a shot glass of whiskey to the pint and drink quickly.
