Method

Serves 1 · Takes 3 minutes
First prepare a Jägerbomb by mixing Jägermeister and Red Bull in a shot glass
Then set up a shot of vodka and a shot of bourbon
Serve the two shots first then chase with the Jägerbomb
~ I have had good results with adding a third shot before the Jägerbomb, but it results in an adverse (or possibly complimentary) effect of total memory loss. ~

Always bear in mind that each ingredient contributes to the unique character of The Gauntlet.
