Preparing a bomb shot.

A bomb shot, depth charge, or drop shot (Western Canada), is a mixed drink that is made by mixing two drinks. A drink in a small glass (typically a shot glass) is dropped into a larger glass holding a different drink. The resulting cocktail is typically consumed as quickly as possible ("chugged"). Recently, the term has become more loosely defined as simply a shot that is made by mixing two drinks.


A bomb shot typically consists of a shot glass of hard liquor that is dropped into a glass partially filled with beer but sometimes with some other beverage. Many variations exist. When the shot is dropped into a superpint it is commonly known as a "Depth Charge," because it resembles the anti-submarine weapon being dropped on a target.

Examples of popular bomb shots include:
