Irish Car Bomb Shot Cocktail Recipe

This bomb shot isn't for the faint of heart. It will begin to curdle if you don’t drink it fast enough! The Irish Shot drink is a popular one for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, but there’s no reason you can’t enjoy this fun beer-and-a-shot combination all year long. The Irish Shot is a type of Boilermaker, a style of drink in which a shot of liquor—usually whiskey—is dropped into a beer. But in this case, the shot is a two-part mixture of whiskey and Irish cream.
