Painting Your Town Green

Ah, St. Patrick’s Day, a day of green clothing, beer and good Irish food! In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day I have decided to give you some laughs, an Irish recipe for the Irish Car Bomb and for all of you who plan on going out and celebrating, I have found a great city guide which tells you the best hot spots to go in the city you live in.

Have a laugh on me:
Two Irishmen, Patrick Murphy and Shawn O’Brian grew up together and were lifelong friends. But alas, Patrick developed cancer and was dying. While on his deathbed, Patrick called to his buddy, Shawn, “O’Brian, come ‘ere. I ‘ave a request for ye.” Shawn walked to his friend’s bedside and knelt. “Shawny ole boy, we’ve been friends all our lives, and now I’m leaving ‘ere. I ‘ave one last request fir ye to do.” O’Brian burst into tears, “Anything Patrick, anything ye wish. It’s done.” “Well, under me bed is a box containing a bottle of the finest whiskey in all of Ireland. Bottled the year I was born it was. After I die, and they plant me in the ground, I want you to pour that fine whiskey over me grave so it might soak into me bones and I’ll be able to enjoy it for all eternity.” O’Brian was overcome by the beauty and in the true Irish spirit of his friend’s request, he asked, “Aye, tis a fine thing you ask of me, and I will pour the whiskey. But, might I strain it through me kidneys first?”

For every wound, a balm. For every sorrow, cheer. For every storm, a calm. For every thirst, a beer. Here is a recipe for an Irish Car Bomb.


1/2 pint Guinness

1 oz. Jamison
1/2 oz. Bailey’s Irish cream


Pour Guiness into a pint glass. Float Baileys on top of Jamison in shot glass. Drop shot glass, carefully, into Guiness. Drink quickly before it curdles.
