This Cherry Bomb is a wild cocktail, but before we break down the recipe for you, here are some other energy drink cocktail recipes that you’ll probably enjoy: the Jelly Donut, the Irish Trash Can, the Energy Long Island Iced Tea, the Jägerbomb, the Atomic Jägerbomb, and the Absinthe Bull. As far as this Cherry Bomb cocktail recipe is concerned, this bad boy mixes up cherry vodka, a splash of grenadine, and, of course, some energy drink — i.e. Red Bull. It’s hard to say where this Cherry Bomb mixed drink was first made or who first made it, but we’re going to go ahead and guess that it’s based on the Cherry Bomb firework. It is a bomb shot after all…. If you’re looking for other bomb shot cocktail recipes, check out these other Red Bull mixed drink recipes.
