Pronunciation: [YAH-ger-my-ster]

A 70-prrof, reddish-brown German liqueur with an intensely bitter herb character, edged with cola and a touch of chocolate in the aftertaste. It's a complex blend of 56 different herbs plus fruits, spices, barks, resins and seeds. Serve Jägermeister (German for "hunt master") icy cold to help tame its assertive flavor.
