The Boilermaker

About The Boilermaker

The epitome of old school and reckless, the Boilermaker has remained a tailgate special and city-wide favorite in Philadelphia, PA. Painfully straightforward and powerful, this cocktail can be varied by changing beer choices or type of spirit used as a depth charge.

The Irish Car Bomb

About The Irish Car Bomb

The Irish Car Bomb is a controversial American cocktail recipe featuring many ingredients of Irish origin. The “explosion” effect of the Baileys into the beer drew the idea for the name of this cocktail. Be warned, ordering this drink in Ireland can be seen as offensive as it refers to a difficult time in Irish history. Overall, the drink is fairly heavy in taste and remains a popular barplace staple in the States.

The Corona Bomb

About The Corona Bomb

We here at Empire Mixology love Corona, and the classic way to enjoy a Corona Extra Cerveza is with a lime wedge. However, we consider this a bit of an upgrade and a way to add an extra punch to your afternoon. As our first Depth Charge recipe, we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

  • Rating:       3.5 Stars

  • Served:      Depth Charge

  • Strength:   Medium

  • Difficulty: Simple

  • Flavor:       Citrus

Method:

Fill a highball with Corona and drop the shot into the highball, chug (responsibly) accordingly.

Alternately, you can avoid the depth charge option by pouring the shot into a bottle of Corona directly and then thumbing the bottle and turning it over.

Empire Tip: Use a lime wedge for garnish and/or as a finish.
