When I read yesterday that some specialists were turning away clients who ordered an Irish Car Bomb, of course I had to have the local barman put together the ingredients for me last night.
In a tall glass fill about 5/8 full with Guinness, add a jigger of Jameson Irish Whiskey, then drop in a jigger of Bailey’s Irish Cream.
I can honestly say it was “not bad.” I’m not a big fan of Guinness, but the Jameson cut the taste, and having the sweetness of the Bailey’s sitting at the bottom of the pint left me with a good taste in my mouth.
But I didn’t order another.
I can understand those of Irish descent taking offense. Imagine walking into a GI bar and ordering an IED: The ingredients might be: Budweiser, Jim Beam, and breast milk.
Or a Jewish Market Destroyer. Ingredients: Mogan David, Chivas (Kosher), and Giraffe Milk (also Kosher.)
