Needless to say, this was not the American bartending community’s finest moment. Ah, but you know the old saw about dark clouds and silver linings...in the early-aughts, sales of Irish Car Bombs blew up stateside (sorry, couldn’t help myself) paving the way for an explosion (there I go again) in Irish whiskey’s popularity.
