Jagermeister is an alcoholic drink available in 70cl bottles and is 30% alcohol. The bottle is green with a distinctive orange label sporting a stags head, which I think is a little unattractive. Jagermeister is classed as a liqueur and has been produced in Germany since around 1935. Made from a mixture of herbs Jeigermeiser is said to originally have been sold fro medicinal purposes similar to tonic wine.
My first and last experience of Jagermeister was at party last year. I was given a Jager bomb, which is simply a shot of Jagermeister dropped in a glass of red bull which should be knocked back in one. I had already had a few refreshments and knocked back my Jagerbomb without hesitation, all I tasted was the red bull with a slight aftertaste of liquorice. Feeling brave I then tried a straight shot of Jagermeister, this I did not like. It tasted like a combination of toothpaste, cough medicine and licorice only not that nice, an experience not to be repeated.
The drink is widely available in supermarkets and local stores and costs on average around £15 per bottle. It's stocked in my local Tesco and Coop for around this price. It is also widely available in pubs and clubs at around £3 a shot and more commonly around £5 as a Jager bomb
I have been told the drink is sometimes used as a digestif after meals but I think it would make my dinner come back up. I know someone also who uses it in a cocktail with Blue Curacao and Cranberry juice and swear it tastes yum, I have refused to taste.
Call me old fashioned but I think I will stick with the sambuca
