|Primary alcohol by volume|
|Served||Straight up; without ice|
|Standard drinkware||A pint glass and a shot glass.|
|Commonly used ingredients|
|Preparation||The shot of sake is dropped into the beer, causing it to fizz violently. The drink should then be consumed immediately.|
Two chopsticks are placed parallel on top of the glass of beer, and the shot glass is placed on top of them. The drinker slams the table with their fists, causing the sake to fall into the beer. It should be drunk immediately. The drinker may count to three in Japanese, "ichi...ni...san...SAKE BOMB!" Or they may simply yell "KANPAI!" The sake bomb chant may also be said before drinking. The chant has one person say "sake" and others say "bomb," before consuming the drink.
A variation of the sake bomb is to "bomb" a shot of warm sake into chilled Red Bull energy drink.
