Sake bomb

Sake bomb
Type Beer cocktail
Primary alcohol by volume
Served Straight up; without ice
Standard drinkware A pint glass and a shot glass.
Commonly used ingredients
  • 1 pint (~16 parts) beer
  • 1 shot (1.5 parts) sake
Preparation The shot of sake is dropped into the beer, causing it to fizz violently. The drink should then be consumed immediately.

The sake bomb or sake bomber is a beer cocktail made by pouring sake into a shot glass and dropping it into a glass of beer.

Sometimes two chopsticks are placed parallel on top of the glass of beer, and the shot glass is carefully balanced between them. The drinker slams the table with his fists, causing the sake to fall into the beer.[1] It should be drunk immediately, and works best with warm sake.

Alternatively, the drinker may count to three in Japanese, " BOMB!" Or he may simply yell "KANPAI!"

A variation of the sake bomb is to "bomb" a shot of warm sake into chilled Red Bull energy drink.
