Parineeti Chopra’s First Drink was a Jager Bomb: What is a Jager Bomb and How to Make it at Home
Parineeti Chopra has been in the news for her body transformation that happened soon after she went on a new diet and workout regimen. She was also part of the Dream Tour that took place in the US and had other Bollywood celebs like Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Katrina Kaif, Varun Dhawan, etc. And from the photos it was clear that these celebs got along like a house on fire and had a lot of fun. Parineeti was recently on Neha Dhupia’s podcast called #NoFilterNeha and she revealed that it was on this tour that she tried her first alcoholic drink. By the end of the tour, these celebs had become really good friends and knew that Parineeti doesn’t drink alcohol. However, they were at a club, partying and ensured that she had not one but two shots of jager bomb. And what happened next was epic as Parineeti danced the night away and had tons of fun. She loved the feeling and wanted to do it again. Guess she is in love with this shot now and why not, it is after all a fun drink. If you are wondering what a jager bomb really is and how you can make it at home, here’s what you need to know.
A jager bomb is a shot that typically contains one shot of jagermeister and half a glass of an energy drink like Red Bull. There are two glasses, one a standard pub glass or high ball glass that contains the energy drink, and a standard shot glass that has the jagermeister. As you drink it, the two liquids mix to create a distinct taste. Most clubs and pubs have this shot as it is a party shot and is slightly on the expensive side. But you can buy a bottle and make it at home as well for your next house party. Here’s how to make it. (ALSO SEE 4 refreshing monsoon cocktail recipes)
30 minutes before you start making your jager bombs, chill the jagermeister in the refrigerator so that it is cool when you drink it. Now take a shot glass and pour the jagermeister in it.
Now take a high ball glass and pour half can of energy drink in it. If you are pouring more jagermeister in the shot glass than the standard limit, increase the quantity of the energy drink as well.
Just before you have to drink the shot, drop the shot glass in the other glass. Do not do this from high up as it can spill the drink, keep the shot glass close to the rim of the high ball glass and then drop it. (ALSO SEE Best Mumbai restaurants with happy hours)
Once you drop, all you have to do is pick up the high ball glass and then drink the shot in one go. Once done, just put the glass down, sit and enjoy the feeling that kicks in. Since the jagermeister contains alcohol and the energy drink contains caffeine, the two mix to create quite a stimulating feeling. But do remember, it can have adverse effects if you drink one too many so restrict yourself to one or two jager bombs only.
