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.

Instructions
