Re: “We take a tour through Charleston's English and Irish pubs and find more than just fish and chips

"Suffice it to say, the [Irish car bomb] is not exactly celebrated on the Emerald Isle." This is a huge understatement. It's not only very rarely served, but if and when it is, it's usually called a "depth charge". 1979 (when the drink was named by some smart arse in CT) was the height of "The Troubles" in Ireland, and car bombs were a real threat in what is still, to many, a very fraught nationalist and religious conflict (although at this point it is very rarely violent). Americans tend to assume that the "car bomb" refers to the way the Bailey's reacts with the Guinness, but the name is actually significantly more detailed, deliberate, and offensive than that. Most Americans have no idea.
