Very popular at the bar, you will often see groups of people drinking Jäger Bombs together. You will either love them or hate them, there is not much middle ground with this potent shot. Without a doubt, this is a drink every bartender should know.

Jägermeister is a very potent liqueur with a slight anise taste and the "depressant" effects of the alcohol are offset by the energy drink Red Bull that it is dropped into. Because of this (and despite common practice), I advise you to take it easy on the Jager Bombs.


Steps to Make It

  1. Fill a shot glass with Jägermeister.

  2. Fill a highball glass, or other tall glass, with Red Bull.

  3. Drop the shot glass into the taller glass.

  • This is not a shot for lightweights or the faint of heart and it is very easy to have one too many without knowing it.
  • It has also become common to for the shot of Jager to be poured directly into the Red Bull, forgoing the 'bomb' altogether. However, if you opt for the drop, be careful so the shot glass doesn't hit your teeth hard as you could crack a tooth.
