Tasting Notes

With a sweet and fruity base from the peach schnapps and cranberry juice, the Vegas Bomb is a flavorful journey. The coconut rum adds a creamy, smooth end. You’ll be ready for anything the night brings thanks to the energy drink’s zesty kick.

Equipment and Glassware

When it comes to making a Vegas Bomb, you will need both the following. There are two glasses to use for it: a shot glass and a pint glass. The mixture of ingredients created in the cocktail shaker should be poured into a shot glass and then dropping it into the pint glass with a little energy drink is how the tradition goes.

Ingredients

  • ½ oz. Crown Royal whiskey
  • ½ oz. Peach Schnapps
