Tips For Making A Vegas Bomb Cocktail

  • Be careful when dropping the shot into the glass. Try to drop it from just above the Red Bull, so it doesn't break the glass or splash too much.

  • Some people add a bit of Malibu Coconut Rum to the shot, to add a bit of extra flavor and alcohol. To make room for it, you can reduce the amount of Cranberry Juice.

  • Don't worry too much about getting the quantities right, since this is a shot, so it doesn't really matter too much.

  • Drink this quickly once you've dropped the shot into the glass.

  • If you don't want it to be a "bomb" cocktail, then you can just mix the shot ingredients in the glass with the Red Bull, and serve with ice.
