This explosive cocktail shooter is a product of the USA.
Various recipes exist, most of them using rum as the base and adding melon or watermelon liqueur, finishing with juice or lemon-lime soda.
Most variations are shaken and then served in a shot glass, but some people like to make the Melon Bomb into a highball drink, serving it in a Collins or other glass.
In other uses, “melon bomb” can actually refer to a melon (or watermelon) with explosives inside it! This Melon Bomb cocktail, however, has nothing to do with such a reckless device, and is simply a delicious fruity beverage.
