Jägermeister is a German bitter not unlike the ferrets and Amari modern cocktail drinkers already love. Hopefully Jäger is in the beginning stages of its cocktail revival—because it deserves it. Bittersweet and complexly layered with 56 different botanicals, this bitter liqueur can be used in cocktails that traditionally utilizes Amari and Italian bitters to create warm, licorice-forward drinks that still pack a punch.
1 oz Aged Rum, preferably Diplomatico Mantuano
1 oz Jägermeister
1 oz Sweet Vermouth, preferably Carpano Antica
2 dash Angostura Bitters
- Combine all ingredients, except lime peel, into a cocktail mixing glass with ice. Stir well, about 40 seconds.
- Strain over one large ice cube.
- Express lime peel over the surface of the drink. Run the green skin-side of the lime peel over the lip of the glass and enjoy!
