Move over Red Bull and Vodka. Step aside Irish Car Bombs. Pack your bags Jägerbombs. There is a new bar cocktail mix that is creating quite a stir and leaving drinkers feeling pretty darn good: The Tekeen Bomb!
The Tekeen Bomb originated out of the Lone Star State, Texas, and consists of dropping a 1.5oz shot of light beer into a glass filled with around 3.5oz of passion fruit lime Tekeen, a premium alcoholic cocktail.
atombash.com spoke to Tekeen’s founder Christian Alvarez to try and find out more, but he’d only tell us, “One of the best parts about this beverage industry is that it is very dynamic. I am not too sure who invented the Tekeen Bomb but it is actually pretty awesome!”
The popular and trending new shot was first brought to our specific attention during this year’s Spring Break and now we’ve seen it turn into a global craze that has forced bars around the country to start serving it to patrons.
One of the first bars to sell the explosive shot is Avenue 1704 in McAllen, Texas, where a Tekeen Bomb will cost you five dollars. The Tekeen Bomb has also been spotted at various Hollywood parties, at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and was recently reported being enjoyed at California’s Stagecoach Country Music Festival, where the likes of Blake Shelton, Frankie Ballard and Dierks Bentley were seen shooting back a few backstage prior to their performances.
But the real catch with this new trendy shot isn’t so much that it gets you really drunk quickly, but that it tastes incredible thanks to the passion fruit flavoring that the Tekeen element brings to the table; Tekeen is made with agave nectar, orange wine, and all natural flavors. While Irish Car Bombs (Irish stout, Irish cream, and Irish whiskey) are a favorite of males at bars, the Tekeen Bomb is actually being requested and used heavily by females too.
atombash.com spoke to Cindy Horne, a “Tekeen Bomber” who tells us, “During Spring Break us girls brought a few bottles of Tekeen with us because the guys only ever bring beer. We figured we’d try this type of bomb shot out using their beer while down at the pool, and all of us couldn’t get enough. The shot wasn’t heavy at all and tasted great and smooth going down.”
While it seems all is well with the Tekeen Bomb, we do need to disclose that atombash.com spoke to a few individuals that warned us that after having a few you can really “loose your mind” and “act out of character”, and others told us that due to the amount of alcohol level in Tekeen (12%), they didn’t realize how fast the bomb was getting them, and therefore, we here at Examiner recommend that each person please drink responsibly, know your limits, and never drink and drive! Cheers & bombs away!
