Muertito Vivo

Muertito Vivo cocktail with aged rum, overproof Demerara rum, Jägermeister, lime juice, grapefruit juice, and cinnamon syrup

As if we needed any more evidence of the mixological genius of Shannon Mustipher, in she comes with the Muertito Vivo, a tiki cocktail featuring Jägermeister (a sweet Kraüterlikör).

We’d been avoiding Jägermeister for the better part of two decades, after some youthful indiscretions involving the stuff. After trying it in this, though, we’re starting to see it differently. It does come through, but in a genuinely pleasant way – the dominant flavors of the drink are spice, citrus, and a hint of something almost like red cherry licorice.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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!
