You walk into a party and it's about to get lit. Sure, regular shots'll do the trick for ya, but ya know what? It's go big, or go home. Regular mixed drinks and typical chasers are out of the question. So here are some bomb shot ideas for when you just don't want to have a regular old night out. 

Jäger Bombs

Ingredients: 1 ½ oz Goldschlager + ½ can of Red Bull or other energy drink

Flaming Dr. Pepper

Ingredients: A shot glass ¾ full with amaretto, topped with Bacardi rum, placed in a highball glass filled with beer up to the rim of the shot glass. Ignite the shot and let it burn for awhile, then blow out and drink the bomb shot.

Reminds you of: That person at the party who has two papers and a chem final tomorrow, and an alarming level of self-confidence. But hey, they did know how to dance like a Beyoncé back-up.

Berry Bomb

Ingredients: 2 oz raspberry vodka + ½ can energy drink

Reminds you of: That Sorority girl at the bar who you wanted to punch in the face because she felt the need to remind you she was "sooo wasted" every three words.
