Not the most gentlemanly of drinks, but the Irish Bomb Shot offers good fun for night outs. The cocktail is made by dropping a bomb shot of Irish whiskey and cream into a glass of stout. Pour the liqueur in a shot glass, followed by the Irish whiskey. In a separate pint glass, pour the Guinness 3/4 of the way. Drop the shot glass into the Guinness. Chug it quickly as the cream will begin curdling it within a short time.
