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.
- 1½ part Aged rum
- ½ part Overproof aged rum
- ¾ part Kräuterlikör
- ¾ part Lime juice
- ½ part Grapefruit juice
- ¼ part Cinnamon syrup
Shake all of the ingredients with ice. Strain into a tall glass or tiki mug filled with crushed or pebble ice. Garnish with smoking cinnamon sticks or edible flowers.
