Yesterday Pittsburgh celebrated St Patrick's Day with our annual parade and drinking in public from 8am until around 3am. Yup 19 hours of straight drinking. I'm pretty sure thousands of Irish Car Bombs were consumed in addition to many many many gallons of beer.
Late in the afternoon as we watched the streets fill up with partiers all decked out in green, I asked Jon, "Hey!! Will you do me a favor and drink an Irish Car Bomb?"
Being the nice guy that he is, he agreed.
To make an Irish Car Bomb, you need Irish Stout and Irish Cream. We had some Bailey's Irish Cream, but no stout. So he walked to the Intermission Lounge around the corner. They had no Irish stout... and there were a gazillion drunks out, so he came back home... with no Irish Stout.
He offered to drink one made from a Penn Dark. I let him know that he could practice on one of those, but that I'd wait until tomorrow to get pictures with stout. So he practiced... and I had a margarita! I did have a sip of his German Car Bomb and I was kinda surprised that I actually liked it!
Fast forward to today. We had a kinda late breakfast... then a little while later, Jon said he was ready to try the Irish Car Bomb again and left in search of Irish Stout.
He brought home a Murphy's Stout and a Young's Double Chocolate Stout from Smokin' Joe's Saloon.
Yay!! Murphy's Irish Stout!
It's Irish Car Bomb time!
Pour the chilled stout into the pint glass.
Pour a shot of Irish Cream and let the stout settle.
Now drop the entire shot glass into the pint glass filled with stout.
Now chug it!
Jon's so sweet, taking one for the team and starting out the day with an Irish Car Bomb for my blog!!
