Jagermeister gets a bad rap. Say its name and everyone in front of the bar is going to line up for a Jager Bomb shot, usually accompanied by Red Bull. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
This Germanic mix of 56 herbs and spices invented in 1934 should have disappeared ages ago, but a marketing genius in New York made it the go-to party drink. Maybe its moniker, translated into English as Master of the Hunt, appealed to freshmen, finally liberated from their parents’ house and free to roam collage campuses.
Jägermeister welcomed in the Jägermeister Mule, as a new take on the ubiquitous Jager bomb. You can actually enjoy it in a cocktail instead of doing shots! It takes on the feel of the Moscow Mule, with ginger beer and lime, but replaces Jägermeister with rum! Also a little cucumber is added in as garnish!
I had no idea before making this that ginger is one of the core ingredients in Jägermeister, so the ginger beer brings out the hidden flavor!
All you need for the Jägermeister Mule recipe is Jägermeister, Ginger Beer, lime, cucumber, and, a load of ice. It’s best if you put the Jägermeister and Ginger Beer in the fridge and get it really cold beforehand.
