irish car bombs...

*Add the Bailey's and Jameson to a shot glass, layering the Bailey's on the bottom. 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. If you don't drink it fast enough it will curdle and increasingly taste worse*

This is one of my favorite drinks to partake in when out with friends. One of my favorite memories of this drink is Irish Night my Junior year of college with my friends MJBJ, Ke and a few others! The night consisted of all of us cooking dinner and dessert followed by watching the movie 'Once' and taking these delicious drinks.

We started off the night cooking delicious Sheppard's Pie! MJBJ makes the best I have had to date! Mmm! Our friend Boston brought over some wonderful Guiness Stew and I followed dinner by making this Orange Chocolate Guiness cake! Let me just say that even though the cake wasnt that good, the orange zest icing was to die for!!! All of these dishes clearly having an Irish theme in mind. After dinner we all popped in the movie and started to watch the brilliantness that is 'Once'. I always get teary eyed watching them sing together in the music shop. After a while, everyone decided it would be interesting to make the movie into a drinking game. Every time the main guy character says the word 'cool' everyone would partake in an ICB. Lets just say that after about three we were all ready to stop playing that game!

I miss all of my friends and the wonderful nights we had drinking and hanging out. Sometimes I wish I were back in college with no cares except for work! I would encourage everyone to try this wonderful drink!

Ahem. Correction: I made the Shepherd's Pie. Mark is a great cook but don't take away from me the one dish I can actually cook right. Haha. But he did man the flames from the overflowing juices and ensured crispy top layer.
