The Vegas Bomb shot, also known as Vegas Bomb, is a fun party drink.

You consume it by first dropping the shot glass of mixed ingredients into a large glass of Red Bull for a very bubbly and fun splash action!

Yes, you can drink it as a cocktail and mix everything in the cocktail shaker to avoid the mess, but what’s the fun in that?!

What is a Vegas Bomb Shot?

The Vegas Bomb drink is a combination of an energy drink (like Red Bull) and a shot of mixed ingredients known as the “Royal Flush”.

The original Royal Flush shot is made with Crown Royal whiskey, cranberry juice, and peach schnapps.

The Royal Crown whiskey lends its nice oaky notes to the rest of the sweet and fruity ingredients.

We love doing fun things with whiskey like turning it into a Whiskey Dreamsicle Cocktail, a Whiskey Ice Sphere or even incorporating it into ice cream for a whiskey caramel sauce.

What’s in the Vegas Bomb Shot Cocktail?

Crown Royal whiskey — A classical whiskey brand. If you don’t have this one in hand, feel free to use the one you have or prefer. 

Peach schnapps — For fruitiness and sweetness. Also used in Gummy Bear Shots and Rose Martini.

Cranberry juice — For a tart and fruity touch. (Just make sure to use cocktail cranberry juice and not the concentrate since that one is too tart) 

Malibu rum — For a nice coconut addition to the fruity mix and also the star in a Malibu Bay Breeze.

Red Bull — For the ultimate bubbly, sweet and caffeinated ingredient that is also in an Irish Trash Can.

Notes and Tips

— It gets messy, but is a very entertaining cocktail to have at a party. To ensure safety (after all, it is glass clashing glass), choose sturdy glasses and do not drop the shot from a very long distance. Dropping it from the brim of the glass is more than enough to create the iconic splash and bubbles. 

— This Vegas Bomb recipe is very sweet and fruity and can be drunk easily. But do not forget it’s quite potent!
