Hey Bartender – California Car Bomb

Firkin and Fox Pub
By Chris Murphy

The California Car Bomb
One of the things you need to know is that you don’t try to order an Irish Car Bomb in Ireland. This is an American thing and best of all, it is really really tasty and has a wonderful chocolate taste. This month, we make this our own drink, a California Car Bomb. This is a sport drink as it combines so many different flavors, and of course, some gymnastics and some amazing Do Good Bourbon Whiskey.

Our friends at Firkin and Fox Pub are ready or this year’s St Patrick’s Day season. They are planning an all day celebration, green beer, corned beef and cabbage and more. As a Murphy, it is St. Patrick’s Day all year long and it is always a good time for a Car Bomb. So let’s get right to it and see how this car is built.

First, this is an acrobatic exercise and timing is everything. Our amazing bartender Devry Thayer delivered this treat with precision and the mix was perfect.

In a shot glass – 2/3 DoGood California Bourbon 1/3 Baileys
In a Pint glass – ½ Pint of Guinness
