Vegas Bomb Shot Drink Recipe

Been to Vegas? Drinking at home? Smart. Impress your friends with the Vegas Bomb. It’s a delicious party drink. Perfect for small gatherings.

A group of my friends actually got in on the reopening of Las Vegas. They were SO excited and had a great time.

They came back with lots of good drinking stories. We missed it unfortunately.

Maybe that’s why this drink caught my eye. If you can’t be there make a Vegas bomb. It’s a showy, fun drink and makes a great splash. Just like Las Vegas.

Preparing The Vegas Bomb Drink
You need a royal Flush Shot and a glass of red bull to make this dropped shot.

Find ALL of our cocktails in our COCKTAIL SECTION. There is going to be a drink in there you will love. Here’s a few of our adult refreshments.

The Vegas bomb shot is made as a Royal Flush drink recipe too. Without the Red bull. 🙂

Do Vegas Bombs get you Drunk?

Vegas Bombs are made up of 3 different kinds of liquor and can get you drunk. This cocktail has small amounts of alcohol in it, only amounting to 3/4 oz total. This is not a super strong cocktail, but any drink with alcohol in it has the ability to get you drunk. The caffeine from the Red bull mixed with the alcohol is also something to consider.

We recommend only drinking 1 Vegas Bomb in an evening. The caffeine content from 1 red bull is 111 mg in a standard 12 oz can. Know your caffeine and alcohol limits before choosing to have multiple Vegas Bomb drinks in an evening.

What is a “Bomb” in drinks?

The bomb in a drink is a shot that is dropped into a glass of liquid. There are lots of different types of bomb shot cocktails. However, they are all made up of a standard drink with a bomb shot dropped in. Traditionally when served a bomb shot, it is expected to be “chugged” quickly after dropping in the bomb shot.

These are the ingredients and brands we used. They blended very well. The shot is a pretty red that make a great visual counterpoint to the glass of red bull when you drop the shot.

Royal Flush Shot

This is a simple pour and drop shot. No need for a cocktail shaker. It all gets shaken together in the end. 🙂

Here’s a quick look at the steps of making this shot. Watch our complete video recipe demonstration to see the shot drop! It’s fun to watch. 🙂

If you want a really LARGE bomb you can try a double shot glass. Just keep the ingredients of the shot in proportion and you may need a bit of extra Red Bull to drop this larger glass.

I’m going to make this shot without Malibu but I want to make it in a big jug but have the Red Bull separate so I can pour shots fast and only add Red Bull. How can I evenly mix the cranberry, schnapps, and crown together ? Thanks Adam

Hi Adam! I'm not sure how big of a jug you are wanting to make. If I was to turn it into a larger batch I would try 1 cup crown, with 1 cup cranberry, and 1 cup of the schnapps. I would also give it a try before you make a big jug and see if you like the taste without the malibu. I hope that helps! Cheers! Kayti
