A Jager Bomb is a very potent bomb mixed drink that is made by dropping a shot of Jägermeister into a glass of energy drink.

Jager bombs are an alcoholic drink and contain around 7 percent alcohol which is a little bit more than the average beer.

The Jager bomb has a reputation for making people drunk as the bomb can make people continuously drink until they have had too much.

How to Make a Jager Bomb?

A key ingredient in a Jager Bomb is the Jägermeister itself!

A Jager bomb is made using two simple ingredients Jägermeister and an energy drink.

What you need:

  • 1 and half ounces of Jägermeister
  • 6 ounces of an energy drink (about half a can)
  • A shot glass
  • A highball glass (Or any other tall glass)


  1. Fill a shot glass with Jägermeister
  2. Pour your energy drink into the highball glass
  3. Drop the shot glass into the highball glass
  4. There you have it! Now all that’s left to do is make a toast with your friends and enjoy.

Jager Bomb Nutritional Content

According to The Guardian a standard Jager bomb contains:

  • 25g Sugar
  • 130 Calories
  • 41mg of Caffeine

However, this will vary depending on which energy drink you choose to use. For a complete and comprehensive guide on everything you need to know about energy drink ingredients, check out my other article that I’ve linked to here which includes everything you need to know.

Jager Bomb side Effects

A Jager bomb has a special trait to it.

While you can get drunk due to the Jägermeister that is in it. The energy drink would also mask the side effects of alcohol.

You may take the alertness given by the energy drink as the idea that they are not being affected by the alcohol and therefore might proceed to drink more.

All in all, drinking too many Jager Bombs will leave you in quite a mess.

Excessive drinking of Jager bombs may cause a number of side effects both in the long and short term.

Some of the potential side effects are:

  • Obesity (due to the excess of sugar and calorie consumption)
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Alcohol Addiction
  • Problems Sleeping
  • Feeling Tense or Agitated

Can a Jager Bomb Kill you?

According to an article by Wales Online, Jagerbombs can indeed kill you.

People have a tendency to underestimate the amount that they are drinking due to the mixture.

There have been reports of a teenager collapsing at home after drinking 10 cocktails of Jager Bombs in short succession.

She had suffered three heart attacks and was eventually put into a medically induced coma.

The teenager spent three weeks in the hospital recovering from the incident.


As such, it’s important that we not underestimate the risks that come with drinking Jager Bombs. Control is key and even if it may not feel as if we are drunk it is important we watch our body and stop ourselves before it goes too far.

Best Type of Energy Drink for Jager Bombs

There are many types of energy drinks that can go into a Jager bomb.

However, these few work best in my opinion as they complement the Jägermeister’s bitter taste very well.

Feel free to give them all a go and tell me which one suits you better.

Red Bull

A can of Red Bull energy drink
Red Bull is the most commonly used energy drink for Jager Bombs.

Most commonly used in a Jager bomb, the Red Bull energy drink is a staple in any Jager bomb.

Red Bull contains 27g of sugar and 80mg of caffeine, a good amount to put into any Jager Bomb.

Due to its high caffeine content and sweetness, the sugar in Red Bull will level out the bitterness of Jägermeister.

The majority of the time when you order a Jager Bomb in a bar this is the energy drink that it will be mixed with.

2 cans of Monster energy drink sitting next to each other
Monster is a popular choice for Jager Bombs.

I would recommend Monster for people who want a sweeter taste in their Jager Bomb.

Monster has 54g of sugar and 179mg of caffeine.

Monster comes in a bigger can than Red Bull, and when compared on a per-fluid-ounce basis, the two drinks are actually very similar.

If you want to know exactly how Monster and Red Bull differ, take a look at my other article where I break all of the differences down for you.

REIZE (Most Recommended)

REIZE Energy Drink is a great choice for jager bombs
My personal favorite energy drink for Jager Bombs.

In my opinion, REIZE is the ideal energy drink for a Jager bomb because it is sugar-free and contains a sensible amount of caffeine.

Of course, you should always drink in moderation, but why not save some money while you’re at it?
