Jäger Bombs

Easy to order, and delicious!!

Order a Jäger bomb - it's a shot of Jägermeister dropped into a Red Bull energy drink. Lots of fun with a group of friends. It'll get you tipsy pretty fast. It contains caffeine as well as alcohol, so just be careful. But enjoy, because Jäger bombs are awesome!!

(note: it's pronounced YAY-ger bomb.)

"On the rocks" means over ice.

"I'd like a whiskey on the rocks."

"Neat" means without ice.

"I'd like a whiskey, neat."

      I love martini bars and trying any flavor I can. I always get a Lemon Drop martini to compare every place with my favorite! Blessed!

      My fave is a Whiskey sour. No matter where I go, it's impossible for a bartender to screw it up. It was "my" drink for awhile, but then I got my friends hooked on it haha. Also, can never go wrong with a beer. Unless it's a Bud light ir Coors light. That crap tastes like water. A real man drinks regular beer.

      I love the tropical drinks, coladas, daiquiris, long islands, margaritas. I guess I just like pretending I'm on a warm beach somewhere in the tropics rather than in a bar.
