A Flavor Explosion in Every Sip!!!
The Vegas Bomb cocktail originated in the lively nightclubs of Las Vegas. It quickly became a staple drink due to its energizing and refreshing taste.
Vegas Bombs offers an invigorating blend of fruit flavors and fizz. The sweetness of the liqueurs balances beautifully with the tartness of lemon-lime soda. A splash of cranberry juice adds a pretty pink hue and a hint of tart berry flavor.
This cocktail is often served as a shot, but it can also be enjoyed over ice for a longer, more luxurious experience. Each sip is a flavor explosion!
Gather Your Ingredients For Vegas Bomb Recipe
Making the perfect Vegas Bomb requires just a few ingredients:
- 1 oz peach schnapps
- 1 oz raspberry liqueur
- 1 oz cranberry juice
- 1 can lemon-lime soda (7-Up or Sprite)
You’ll also need:
- A cocktail shaker
- Shot glasses or rock glasses
Mixing Tips for Crafting the Cocktail
Follow these simple steps for assembling refreshing Vegas Bombs:
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Pour the peach schnapps, raspberry liqueur, and cranberry juice into the shaker.
- Shake vigorously until well-chilled.
- Fill shot glasses halfway with the chilled cocktail mixture.
- Top off each shot glass with lemon-lime soda. The soda will cause the cocktail to fizz up, so leave a little room at the top!
- Serve shots immediately before the fizz dies down.
If using rocks glasses instead of shots, fill the glasses with ice before adding the cocktail ingredients.
Amp Up the Flavor with Variations
The beauty of the Vegas Bomb is that it can be customized to suit any taste. Try these tasty variations:
- Substitute melon liqueur or vodka for the peach schnapps.
- Use lime soda instead of lemon-lime for a tropical twist.
- Garnish with lime or lemon wedges.
- Rim the glasses with sugar for extra sweetness.
- Splash in a different fruit juice like orange or pineapple.
- Float amarula cream liqueur on top for added richness.
Party Tips for Making Vegas Bombs
When mixing Vegas Bombs for a party, follow these tips:
- Pre-mix the peach schnapps, raspberry liqueur, and cranberry juice in a pitcher so they’re ready to pour.
- Chill soda and shot glasses ahead of time for an extra frosty fizz.
- Pour the soda gently against the inside edge of the glass to maintain the fizz.
- Work quickly! The bubbles die down fast so Vegas Bombs are best consumed right away.
- Prepare more than you think you’ll need. Vegas Bombs go fast at parties!

Store and Reuse Your Leftovers
You don’t need to waste leftover cocktail ingredients. Store any unused peach schnapps, raspberry liqueur, soda or juice in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
The prepared Vegas Bomb mixture without soda can also be stored for several days. When ready to reuse, simply shake or stir again and top with fresh soda to refresh the fizz.
Troubleshooting Your Cocktail
If your Vegas Bombs fall flat, check that:
- The soda and glassware are chilled – warm ingredients equals weak fizz.
- You’re using fresh, fizzy soda – old or flat soda won’t bubble up enough.
- The proportions are correct – too much juice can dampen the fizz.
- You’ve left room for the foam to form without overflowing.
With the right techniques, you’ll be delighting guests with effervescent Vegas Bombs in no time!
Frequently Asked Questions
What can I use instead of peach schnapps? Vodka, melon liqueur, rum, or triple sec all work well in place of the peach schnapps.
Can I make this cocktail alcohol-free? Yes! Omit the schnapps and raspberry liqueur and increase the cranberry juice to 3 oz.
What glassware works best? Ice-filled shots or rock glasses are ideal. Tall narrow glasses prevent the bubbles from dissipating too quickly.
How long do Vegas Bombs last when pre-mixed? The cocktail mixture without soda can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days. The finished bombs with soda should be consumed right away.
