Jager Ginger Lime

What is it?
A herbal-flavoured bitter German liqueur, made from a blend of over 50 herbs, fruits and spices. It is then sweetened with ginger-flavoured soda.

Where is it from?
Jägermeister hails from Germany. The name Jägermeister literally translates to "master of hunters." It was a title for a high-ranking official in charge of matters related to hunting. While it’s roots are entrenched in German history it is enjoyed worldwide. 

What does it taste like?
Jägermeister has a bitter taste. It should be served icy cold to tame its assertive herbal flavour. It is popular as a straight shot and also mixed with energy drinks.

Tip

A shot glass of Jägermeister dropped into a glass of energy drink is known as a Jägerbomb. In Northern Europe, a Jägerbomb is Jägermeister dropped into a glass of beer. We’ve experimented with Jägermeister and ginger beer, you may also like it mixed with orange soda or tonic water.
