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.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients (except the bitters) with ice. Strain into a tall glass or tiki mug filled with crushed or pebble ice. Add more ice humped up above the level of the drink, and saturate the ice with bitters. Garnish with a lime wedge or a piece of candied ginger.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
