German Vacation

German Vacation cocktail with Jägermeister, aged rum, ginger liqueur, orgeat, lemon juice, and Peychaud's bitters

The name “German Vacation” makes us think of German sunbathers leaving their towels on pool chairs, rather than the 56-ingredient sweet-bitter gut punch of Jägermeister, a German Kraüterlikor.

But that’s what brilliant mixologist Sother Teague calls for in his German Vacation recipe, so that’s what we made (if not without some measure of trepidation). The result? A shockingly-delicious, totally-tropical refreshment with flavors of cherry and citrus.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
