An Irish Slammer is a classic bar drink. A shot glass of half Irish cream liqueur and Irish whisky is dropped into a pint of Guinness. Drink quickly to avoid the Irish cream from separating!

If there’s one adult beverage to try this St. Patrick’s Day, make it an Irish Car Bomb.

The distinct almost coffee-like flavor of Guinness is rounded out with the sweetness of the Bailey’s with a kick from Irish Whiskey. Simply fill a sturdy bottomed pint glass 3/4 of the way up and drop a shot glass with a 1/2 ounce of both Irish cream liqueur and Irish whiskey. 

But drink fast, otherwise the cream will curdle.
