Sake Bomb Shot Recipe

A shot glass filled with sake is dropped into a glass of beer to make this Japanese cocktail. In the years following World War II, there are a few reports suggesting that sake bombs were actually invented by U.S. soldiers serving in Japan. In Japan, a shot of sake is typically taken by balancing a shot glass on top of two chopsticks that are placed across the rim of a beer glass. There is something magical about counting to four or shouting kampai until the shot glass slips into the beer, as the fists smash against the table.
