Leather Daddy

Pain is pleasure.

I find the act of chugging an Irish Car Bomb, followed by doing whip-its and poppers, to be pretty stimulating—much like a slap in the face can be quite energizing. Speaking of, it could be fun to add a slap back* to this drink as well.

If you are looking to add extra stimulants, try using a creamy energy drink in place of Baileys. Suggestions: Java Monster Irish Blend, Muscle Monster Vanilla, or Rockstar Energy Horchata.

* Slap back: a slap to the face after consuming an alcoholic beverage.
