The Irish Car Bomb is another popular bar shot similar to the Jäger Bomb. It's customary to to chug this drink shortly after the shot is dropped in the glass, but it's becoming more popular for bartenders to skip the shot glass altogether and just mix everything in a tall glass. This is one shooter that is not for the faint of heart for the simple fact that it's a lot to down so quick.

Love it, Member les99

The only time I'll chug is for an Irish Car Bomb. Drink it quick before it curdles!! Of course, Guinness is a Stout, not a lager...
