My Husband first started drinking Jagermeister on nights out in town; he would have a Jager and Red Bull to boost his energy. I first tried Jagermeister a couple of months ago, despite regularly having a bottle in the house; I can't say I was all that impressed.
Jagermeister is an herbal liqueur; it is supposed to be enjoyed as a digestif (after meal to aid digestion) and a cough remedy. Not walloped down the neck in great quantities on a night out.
The Jagermeister bottle is a dark green in colour (poison bottle?) and rectangular in shape, on the front of the bottle is a stag and a cross, Jagermeister translates as hunting master. Jagermeister is best served very chilled and mixes well with energy drinks.
Jagermeister is a dark golden brown in colour, it looks like runny treacle. It smells very herbal and medicinal a bit like Dandelion and Burdock; this is down to the fact that it is a combination of 56 herbs, roots and spices. The taste of Jagermeister is quite sweet and reminds me of a cough medicine my parents used to give me as a child (maybe they fed me this, who knows??) I can taste liquorice very strongly and a hint of aniseed, on its own it is not something I enjoy.
I have also had this mixed with an energy drink; the combination of the Jagermeister and Red Bull is quite an unusual one and is quite more-ish in a strange way. I did not enjoy drinking it but was strangely happy to have a second one.
Jagermeister is 35% alcohol by volume, so is fairly potent. The combination of strong alcohol and energy drink has fuelled many a night out and restless bed time.
I personally am not a fan of Jagermeister but my husband tells me that it mixes well with most fizzy pops and produces interesting and tasty results.
Jagermeister can be found in most supermarkets, off licenses and online retailers and costs around £15 for a 70cl bottle. Many recipes for cocktails can be found online, although Jagermeister is not a drink I currently enjoy I would not be averse to trying a few cocktails with it in.
In conclusion, I am unsure about Jagermeister but it seems to be a drink enjoyed by many and continues to be very popular.
Thank you for reading.
Summary: A herbal alcoholic drink that i am yet to be convinced about.
