The drink gets its name from the way it is commonly consumed; the usual procedure is to leave about a fifth of the glass empty to allow the drink to fizz, then to hold one's hand over the top of the glass and then slam it onto a hard surface to mix it. The slamming action releases gas bubbles from the mixed drink causing it to foam vigorously. It will then quickly escape the glass if not imbibed immediately, the result (and intention) of which is swift intoxication.
It can also be served with equal parts tequila, white wine (or champagne), and lemonade, creating a more potent, flavoursome mix.
A Mexican variant known as the "Tequila Boom-Boom" uses tequila, 7-Up (or Sprite), and grenadine syrup.
