Colt 45


Colt 45 Cocktail

The Colt 45 is a sort of gin-based, slow-sipping Jager Bomb.

If you are a fan of a Vodka Red Bull, you may just find the Colt 45 to be a good alternative. This one does pack a little more of a punch, however, and despite it being meant as a tall sipper, you could liken its potency to more of that of a Jager Bomb. That is because of the inclusion of the Jagermeister, of course, but in the Colt 45 it is paired with gin. This unlikely combination does have the effect of turning the Red Bull base into something more aromatic, which does play rather well against the unique taste of that energy drink.
