He then went through the school of hard knocks at The Pub in NYC under a career bartender whom had been bartending since the age of 13 in Ireland.

    Hi, I am Josh Dubois, and today we are showing you how to make a bunch of different kinds of shots and right now I am going to show you how to make an Irish Car Bomb. Now an Irish Car Bomb can be made with several different kinds of whiskies, it doesn t always have to be an Irish whisky, so, like in our case today, we don t have an Irish whisky, but we are still going to make the Irish Car Bomb, they are probably not going to be able to tell the difference.

    So, you can use pretty much any kind of whisky, but the best kind of whisky to use is an Irish whisky such as Jameson or what not. First, you are going to is fill up a pint glass about half way with guinness, Irish part number one. Second, you are going to fill up the shot, a little over three quarters of the way full with whisky, Irish part number two.

    Next, we are going to take Baileys and we are going to put it on top. Now this doesn t have to be layered or anything, you just mix it together. And if you have ever been in a college bar or some place and they pour out of some, like a rail bottle, something that looks about this color, chances are that they premixed a really, really cheap whisky and a really, really cheap version of Irish cream and the reason that they do that is, so that the Irish cream is actually cheaper than the whisky and you are getting way more Irish cream in your Irish Car Bomb than you would probably like.

    So, it s better, always better to have your bartender mix your Irish Car Bomb right in front of you, that s when you know you are getting your money s worth, because these drinks are quite expensive in bars.

    Next thing that you are going to do, is you are going to take your shot, drop it right in, doesn t matter if it spills or not because you are having fun and you chuck the whole thing down. That s how you make an Irish Car Bomb. Next we are going to show you how to make a Flaming Doctor Pepper.
