Irish Car Bombs

Here’s the thing.  I don’t like beer.  I have friends who have tried endlessly to find beer I will like and after two years of trying, there are two wheat beers I have found which I don’t hate.  A vast improvement for me.  There is one thing though that I do not enjoy: Irish Car Bombs.  I tried one over a year ago while celebrating someone’s birthday.  All of us were doing Irish Car Bombs and I willingly agreed to try one because I was told “It tastes just like a chocolate milkshake!”  Turns out my friends are liars, because it does not taste like chocolate milkshakes.  It tastes like coffee.  For most people this would not be a problem, because most people enjoy coffee.  I, on the other hand, do not.  I refuse to drink coffee, mostly because my youth pastor in high school was so throughly addicted to coffee that it forever turned me off coffee.  Since I managed to survive undergrad and graduate school without coffee, I imagine I can go the rest of my life without it.  So when it comes time for my friends to partake in Irish Car Bombs again, I happily take the role of photographer.  As I was going through some old photos yesterday I found pictures from the last few times I was around when we did Irish Car Bombs.  This is what I get to document:

They get really excited when they order Car Bombs.

Really excited.

Notice how I'm holding a glass of water.

Poised and ready.

All done.

Gearing up.

The components.

Bottoms up!

And this is what happens afterward. We stand on random scaffolding in the backyard.

  1. I didn’t drink coffee regularly until I had Jude. just saying…

    And I’ve never had an Irish car bomb, but I have made car bomb cupcakes, which are amazing. 🙂
