A hammer drill will work best, with a bit made specifically for that tool.

A hammer drill rotates like an ordinary drill, but also moves in short strokes along the axis of the bit - hence the name 'hammer'.

Standard masonary bits will work in a hammer drill, but because of the hammering action a bit designed for that type of abuse will last a lot longer.
