I put on 15 lbs one summer drinking Iron Butterflys. Then there's everyone's favorite - the Blowjob. You could just check out baileys.com or here the dreamsicle looks really good.

A variation on Juicy's Blowjob: surely you know of the Cowboy Cocksucker?

Quite frankly, though, Bailey's, Milk and Ice in a tall glass can't be surpassed.

The best mixed drink I ever had with Bailey's was, I think, this.

In general, though, I like to add Bailey's to coffee, hot chocolate, or cappucino.

B-52: Layered shot with Kahlua, Bailey's, and Grand Marnier. Mmmm.

Smash some ice cubes with the back of a spoon into chips. Put ice chips in glass, pour Bailey's over ice chips. Enjoy.

Irish Car Bomb... or is that just a drunk college kid thing?

I like:

1.0 Baileys
1.0 Kahlua
1.0 Amaretto
0.5 Frangelico
1.0 to 1.5 Vodka

Cement mixer:

1 shot of Bailey's
1/2 shot Rose's Lime Juice

Put the bailey's in your mouth but don't swallow. Then the lime juice. Swish the mixture around in your mouth. The acid curdles the Baileys. Gross but fun.

I'll second the Bailey's and hot cocoa. By a warm fire.

I'll third it. (and it's good in coffee too, with a little cinnamon)

Put a shot of each of these at the bottom of a tall glass:
Jameson, Malibu, Amaretto, Kahlua
Fill it up with coffee, leaving just enough room for a shot of Bailey's on the top.

My friend calls it the "Hot Fuck." It ends up tasting just like hot chocolate.

I'll second the Irish Car Bomb, yum!

Vanilla milk shakes with Bailey's mixed in - these were a big hit at a Christmas party one year.

There's the Baby Guinness.

Fill a shot glass with Kahlua, then drizzle Bailey's over a spoon to create the "head."

The Cuban Missile Crisis:

1 Shot Vodka (Ruskies)
1 Shot Irish Creame (JFK)
1 Shot Rum (Caribbean Influence)

I think this is an original name/recipe, but I could be wrong.

Irish car bombs are pretty great. Nobody believes me until they try one. But they are, indeed, a college thing.

The Chocolate Chip Cookie: (shot)

1/3rd Creme de Cacao (clear)
1/3rd Irish Cream
1/3rd Kahlua

It can be layered, but I forget the order.

And yes, Irish Car Bombs are the sh*t.

Maybe it's because I never went to college, but I think Irish Car Bombs are pretty great. The key is to drink it quickly. The combination of flavors sounds gross, but for some reason it's pretty tasty.

I had a shot once that sounds very much like id's Chocolate Chip Cookie that was called the Oatmeal Cookie. I'm not sure what's in it, since I got it at a bar, but it almost definitely had Bailey's (and I think Kahlua, maybe the third ingredient was changed) in it. It was layered, and tasted exactly as advertised...

A bastardised Springbok (the real version uses Amarula cream instead of Bailey's): 1/2 Bailey's and 1/2 Creme De Menthe layered in a shotglass. Goes down smooth.

1. Take 2 nips Baileys Irish Cream;
2. Froth with electric beater;
3. Pour down sink;
4. Get beer.

You can bastardize a White Russian with Baileys instead of milk. I guess that would be an Irish Russian?

Irish Carbomb Story:
At one of the many Irish bars here in Boston, I saw a typical frat dude order three Irish Carbombs from the Irish bartender.

"Don't call them that," the bartender said. "I'll make your drinks, but don't call them Irish carbombs."

"Why?" asked the fratdude.

"It's like going into a bar and asking for a 9/11. You just don't do it."

"Whatever. Three carbombs, please."


But then while the bartender was making the drinks, the fratdude starts talking loudly on his cell, "No, dude! We're in town drinking some Irish carbombs!"

I watched the bartender loving dollop each drink with some spit. I don't call'em Irish carbombs anymore.
