I love March. The flowers bloom, the birds sing, and Lent is close to ending. But the best part of March, aside that whole “coming together to stab, in groups” thing, is St. Patrick’s Day. I’m not Irish, but I sure appreciate the culture and revelry and spirit of the Irish.
Except Notre Dame. They are dead to me.
Today’s Drink of the Week will slam you to the ground. Very appropriate, since I am sure a lot of people will be slammed to the ground physically while celebrating the holiday.
Irish Car Bomb
- ¾ pint Guinness Stout™
- 1 oz. shot Bailey’s™ Irish Cream
Simply drop the shot into the stout, boilermaker style, and chug it down. You do have to drink this quickly because the cream will curdle in the drink. Some prefer to do a half-and-half shot of Bailey’s and Jameson’s™, but this is simpler and less messy.
Believe me, you want to save the mess for the eventual bar fight 😉
