The most well-known of the Guinness cocktails is the Irish Car Bomb. Now, though the "bomb" bit actually comes from the fact that this is technically a bomb shot, the "car" bit is a reference to the IRA blowing a lot of stuff up in Northern Ireland a few years back. As such, many actual Irish people find the name offensive. This mix of whiskey, Bailey's, and Guinness is a strictly American invention though, so just don't order it if you find yourself on the Emerald Isle and you'll be fine.
