Drop shots (aka Depth Charges, aka Bombs) are more than the sum of their parts. As the shot crashes into the pint glass, a crazy flavor metamorphosis takes place. Guinness, Baileys and Jameson in an Irish Car Bomb taste like chocolate milk. Jägermeister and Red Bull in a Jäger Bomb taste like bubble gum, licorice or cotton candy, depending on who you ask. The amaretto and rum in a Flaming Dr. Pepper taste like, well, Dr. Pepper. We’re not sure if it’s sorcery or chemistry, but we’re not going to question it.
We are, however, going to keep trying new drop shot combos until the table is soaked and our taste buds are satisfied. If you’ve only tried Jäger Bombs or Sake Bombs (or you pooh-pooh the idea of obnoxious drop shots altogether), it’s time to gather a few adventurous friends, put on something you don’t mind getting splashed on, and get to bombing. You’ll drop, you may scream, you’ll slam the glass back, and your mind will be blown.
