      Hi....would love to know if you have ever tried this as a jelly ?? Having a St Patricks day party and thought of using martini glasses ....having the black colour (jelly) car bomb on the bottom.....and whipped cream with gelatin...or panna cotta on the top. Hey presto it "should" look like GUINNESS...with a shamrock on the top of course. Would love to know if this has been tried and if the heck would I do it ? :-)

      Don't know how I managed to miss this one! Guiness + Jamesons = heaven in a glass. Not the biggest fan of Bailey's. But I no longer drink, so guess I'll never get to check out this adult beverage. Thanks for brining it to Hub Pages! MM

      I've made an Irish car bomb drink before, but the recipe I used said to take the shot of half Jameson and half Bailey's, and than chase it with a pint of guiness. It was delicious, but dropping the shot glass right into the beer sounds like fun! I'll have to try it, and let you know what was better.
