Easy Cherry Bomb Shot Recipe is the perfect combination of cherry vodka, Red Bull, and Grenadine.
Cherry Bomb Shot Recipe
I love easy delicious cocktail shots that take barely a minute to prepare. This Cherry Bomb Shot is packed with flavor.
This is a great cocktail shot for parties. You can line the shot glasses up and make them in a row so everyone can enjoy them at the same time.
This delicious drink is quick and easy to make while tasting fantastic. You can't go wrong with a cherry cocktail.
There is no need for a cocktail shaker when making this recipe. You don't want to shake the red bull that is already carbonated and create a giant mess.
What is in a Cherry Bomb Shot
You only need 3 ingredients to make this great cherry shot cocktail recipe.
- Cherry Vodka
- Red Bull Energy Drink
2 ounce shot glasses - We love these 2 oz shot glasses especially for layered shots.
OXO angled jiggers - these are our go-to measuring tools for cocktails. They work perfectly for pouring in layers for cocktails.
How to make a Cherry Bomb Shot
Step 1 - Add a splash of Grenadine syrup to the Shot Glass.
Step 2 - Pour vodka into the shot glass.
Step 3 - Top with Red Bull until you reach the top of the shot glass
Another way to make this cocktail is to mix the grenadine and cherry vodka in a shot glass. Add Red Bull to a pint glass then drop the shot of cherry vodka and grenadine into the red bull.
If you don't have cherry vodka you can use regular vodka, cherry schnapps, or cherry liqueur. The shot will not have the same cherry flavor.
If you are not a fan of Red Bull you can switch it for lemon lime soda ((Sprite or 7-up) or tonic/seltzer water to still have the bubbles in the cherry bomb cocktail.
We have seen this shot served with a maraschino cherry in the bottom of it. if you serve it this way just make sure you warn people before they shoot the drink quickly.
This can also be served in a small glass/highball glass if you want to taste more of the red bull energy soda.
You can also garnish with maraschino cherries on a cocktail pick over the top of the glass.
Total time - a couple of minutes at most.
