  • Sweet and herbal, carried by acidic fruitiness. Better with a 2-4 dashes Angostura. Works with Campari too. — ☆☆☆

I love Jagermeister, and

I love Jagermeister, and really wish it didn't have the stigma of being a shitty frat-boy shooter, because I think it has so much potential to make lots of really good cocktails. Unfortunately so many bartenders shy away from it for fear of being discredited due to it's recent history. Case in point: this legendary YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5QJ9i_o5vo 

I digress... I also like my cocktails very much on the dry and bitter. So I reduced the Benedictine to 1/2 oz (might do 1/4 oz Bene next time) and added maybe 1/4 bottle of Underberg...and HOLY SHMOKES BATMAN! I think this might be my new favorite!
