The Jager bomb is a very popular bomb shot cocktail, originally made from a mixture of Red Bull and Jagermeister. It has an unusual taste which some liken to cough syrup and gives you a "boost" from the alcohol-caffeine combination. Treat this one with respect- itís easy to have one too many as the Red Bull offsets the depressant effect of the alcohol content.
Step 1: Materials and Prep
A medium or pint sized glass
A shot glass
1/2 can Red Bull energy drink
1-2 oz shot of Jagermeister herbal liqueur
Step 2: Preparation
Firstly, pre-chill the ingredients. Now this is the fun part! To mix one of these properly you need to do it by dropping a shot glass of Jagermeister into a glass of Red Bull.
If youíre having a party and need to make multiple Jagerbombs, show off your bartending in a theatrical way by making your own Jager-train! It works like this:
Line up glasses of Red Bull with an empty glass at one end. You then need to carefully balance shot glasses of Jagermeister between the rims of a pair of pint glasses as you go along the line. This takes a little trial and error, but the idea is that when you position the shot glasses correctly you just push one to create a domino effect of shots falling into glasses of Red Bull! (See Video below)
If you want to drink a Jagerbomb in a more relaxed fashion you can make it as a mixed cocktail on the rocks. Simply fill a rocks glass with ice, add 1-2 oz of Jagermeister liqueur then top up with Red Bull energy drink.
